What have the Donnas been up to lately? We honestly haven't been keeping track of the Palo Alto girl-punks. But lead Donna Brett Anderson has a new punk-Americana project with Paul Stinson of the Radishes called the Stripminers, and we've got two new tracks from their upcoming single for you to download after the jump.

The first track here, "No Luck," comes through all words and tension, the dual vocal assault singing kind of a lovesick punk-blues. It contrasts rather sharply (and we might say pleasingly!) with "Better Than a Song," a moody, banjo-tinted number that also features both of their voices on the aching refrain, "I can love you better than a song." We do appreciate their suggestion of romantic attachment to songs.

The Stripminers will show off some of their new songs as guests at the Elbo Room next Monday.

  • 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.'"
