Track of the Day: Maxim Ludwig & The Santa Fe Seven

Posted By on Wed, Sep 9, 2009 at 8:18 AM

There's more than a subtle reference to The Band in Maxim Ludwig & the Santa Fe Seven's lonesome folk ballad "To Be With Sweet Marie." The title alone is a reference to Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie," and Ludwing sings his version with a dusty drawl. There's a lot of depth in this homage, from the cosmic twang of a slide guitar to the melancholy harmonies and organ melodies.

Ludwig brings his lucky Seven to Great American Music Hall on Thursday, Sept. 10, when he opens for Brendan Benson.

  • 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.'"
