Bird By Snow
  • Bird By Snow
Fletcher Tucker is a product of the wilds of Nothern California and the Pacific northwest, so it's not entirely surprising that his music sounds the way it does: subtle, remote, rich, contemplative. Bird By Snow released a full-length, Common Wealth, earlier this year; today, Tucker is offerring two woodsy, hypnotic tracks for download as a digital 7-inch, plus another new song.

Not exactly crafted into pop-accessible bites, on this new digital 7-inch, Bird By Snow layers vocal melodies on top of each other for a thick stream, and accompanies them with minimal instrumentation and percussion. It's beautiful music for the rainy season.

Another new song, "Across the Water" offers a more lush, familiar-sounding take on the band's sound. We recommend you start here, and if you like what you hear, check out the 7-inch above.

  • 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.'"
