New York's Woodsist label has released vinyl from a number of eclectic psych- and folk-leaning acts. You can thank the indie label for records by the Fresh & Onlys, Meth Teeth, Real Estate, Thee Oh Sees, Woods, and Wavves, among other acts. Now Woodsist has added another San Francisco act to its roster: local duo the Art Museums will release its debut LP, Rough Frame, in 2010.

The pair that comprises the Art Museums are familiar names on the lo-fi, art folk, experimental scene. Josh Alper and Glenn Donaldson are vets (separately) of Whysp, Grux's Granwich Vaudeville Explosion, Skygreen Leopards, and the Jewelled Antler collective. In this new act, Alper and Donaldson craft a sharp pop jangle perfect to soundtrack a Wes Anderson film.

Check out their first single, "Sculpture Gardens," 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.'"
