We're not sure exactly what it says when your own publicist describes your music as "amateurish," but we're pretty sure it says something. Anyway, we'd call S.F. jangle-poppers Nodzzz charmingly amateurish if at all so, and this new track "Time (What's It Going to Do?) highly enjoyable. Not to engage in a battle of adjectives here, but maybe "adorable" is the word? Or "childish"? -- and we mean that in a nice way. 

Anyway, what's time gonna do? Pretty sure it's going to see the release of a new Nodzzz album, Innings, on the fine Woodsist label this spring. A more satisfying answer to that question -- in the form of a free MP3 of the new song -- awaits you after the jump.

Honestly, this had us at the line "Time, what's it going to do? / Bring me down and wear out my shoes." If this is amateurish -- and, at 1:39 in length, it sorta is -- we like.

Catch Nodzzz playing in S.F. next on March 2 at the Knockout.

  • 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.'"
