San Francisco's Kelley Stoltz is practically a scholar on the matter of vintage rock. So we have high hopes for his next Sub Pop release, To the Dreamers, which is due out October 12. Stoltz's last record, Circular Sounds, tread a familiar path of '60's-indebted pop/rock -- and we mean that in a nice way. Lyrics about San Francisco and a pleasantly musty production make it a reliable slab of harmony-laden, Kinks-y rock. Sub Pop says To the Dreamers will show more of a post-punk edge, which has our eyebrows raised in curiosity. The album will also feature a cover of '60's psych tune "Baby, I Got News For You," on which the song's creator, "Big Boy" Pete Miller, performs with Kelley on the same guitar and amp he used for the original. Sounds cool, eh? Catch Stoltz when he's sorting through the stacks at Grooves Inspiralled Vinyl on Market Street, and he might even tell you a bit more about it.

  • 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.'"
