Lists of hot new artists are all fine and good and inevitable, but without a way for the casual fan to actually check out their music, listing can be an exercise in critical wonkery. Which is why this free podcast is pretty cool: It features songs from all of those called out on KMEL's Freshman 10 list of upcoming Bay Area rappers. There are tracks from Nio tha Gift, Roach Gigz, Jay Ant, Moe Green and six more. Not every track is a winner, but several are. Think of it as a half-hour primer on the Bay Area's next crop of MCs, which, to us anyway, sounds better than another just another list.

  • 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.'"
