Track of the Day: Yoni Wolf of WHY? Covers Pavement

Posted By on Wed, Aug 5, 2009 at 12:03 PM


Local indie music boosters the Bay Bridged are hosting a series of live in the studio sessions with various Bay Area acts, and the latest episode is a good one.  Yoni Wolf, a.k.a. WHY?, gets melancholy over the piano with a cover of Pavement's "Shoot the Singer (1 Sick Verse)." The song sounds incredibly sad stripped back to his forlorn vocals and twinkling ivories. The session also includes a couple good WHY? songs as well--check it out here.

  • 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.'"
