Devendra Banhart "Foolin"

Devendra Banhart | MySpace Music Videos

Who would've thought that such a spiritual-talkin', folksy-music makin' hippie dude would make a video about being a slave for love--and by slave, we mean the boy toy of a much burlier dude who whips him, cuts off his finger, and tortures a lot more than his heart. Behold, the new video for Devendra Banhart's "Foolin," a song where the jarring visuals are definitely at odds with the soft pop soundtrack.

  • 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.'"
