Forget the Monsters of Folk. The real underground neo folk act to keep an ear on is Emerald Triangle. The group has a serious California soft rock pedigree: San Francisco's own Andy Cabic of Vetiver, together with Farmer Dave (Venice denizen who's played with tons of acts, most notably Beachwood Sparks), another So Cal cohort Jonathan Rice (who plays solo and with Jenny Lewis), and Jonathan Wilson (who plays with Black Crowes).

So far the fruits of their collaborations are a mystery, as the Emerald Triangle MySpace is heavier on pretty green coloring and information than it is on music. But these dudes are doing a California tour in November that hits the Independent on Monday the 2nd. The show is being backed/presented by Monterey tastemaking promoter (((folkYeah))), so we have high hopes here.

On a related note, anyone see that the new Devendra Banhart record (out on Warner Bros.) was the lead review in Rolling Stone this issue? Crazy. And they gave it four stars. Although they gave some old Stones box set five stars, so not sure what that says about the mag, but hey, awesome for Banhart.

  • 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.'"
