Track of the Day: Moped

Posted By on Mon, Jul 13, 2009 at 11:15 AM

Looking for light, airy electro to go with this week's summery temps? Give a listen to local boys Moped, who give dancefloors a balmy sheen with cool sax flourishes and spacious synth melodies. The duo of Peter Gavin (vocals, sax, bass and synth) and Scott Eberhardt  (beat master) have long boosted Amnesia's patrons off the bar stools and into motion, but you can check out their chill-in-the-sunshine tunes at home too, thanks to Moped Moves On. From the wordless "That Sun" to the gentle vocals of "Form," these breezy tunes are meant to elevate moods (and heels) with feathery instrumentals and fun samples (kids and distorted steel drums).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
