For those unfamiliar with the burgeoning genre of witch-house, it refers mostly to creepy, synth-filled numbers fueled by slow, hip-hop-flavored beats and tweaked vocals. "Witch-house" is certainly not the most rock solid of descriptions, but when it comes to many of the new sounds coming out these days, putting anything in one box is just about impossible.

One such outfit being lumped into the blurry land of witch-house is San Francisco's own oOoOO (pronounced "oh"). The solo producer -- whose name is currently unknown -- is signed to the premiere hub for this brand of ghostly sonics, Tri Angle Records. That label will release oOoOO's self-titled debut EP next week, but you can stream it in full now.

Six tracks with titles like "Burnout Eyess" and "Sedsumting," which feature airy auto-tuned vocals and a penchant for turning Top-40 sounds on their head, make up much of the oOoOO EP. It's fairly strange, a bit ominous, and quite beautiful. Check out a stream of the record on the XLR8R website 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.'"
