Matching the multidimensional scope of the best prog rock, local troupe Citay remains woodsy and cosmic on its new Dream Get Together. It's a natural step up from 2007's Little Kingdom,

though still marked by tireless, largely instrumental jams. When vocals

do emerge, they're both male and female and exude sighed harmonies, as

on a cover of Galaxie 500's "Tugboat" and the Tune-Yards-featuring

"Mirror Kisses." Completing the equation is producer and onetime member Tim Green, who elevates the band's rainbowlike twin guitar leads, layered acoustic jangle, and siren synths all the more.

The band plays tomorrow night at Slim's, opening for Fruit Bats.

  • 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.'"
