José González is a really private guy. That's why it's a bit surprising that the half-Swedish, half-Argentinian singer-songwriter agreed to have an entire documentary filmed about him while working on his second album, 2007's In Our Nature. The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of José González is making its US premiere at the Noise Pop festival next week, and website Nowness has a pleasing video preview for us all to check out.

José González: In Private on

From the looks of it, this film will be worth seeing for the cinematography alone. The preview is full of beautiful shot after beautiful shot. It looks like we'll get to see González performing live, hanging out backstage, and on the road, among other things. Plus, you have to love the animated short at the end, where a fully-bearded, baby José emerges from a vagina. Really, how can you miss seeing that on a big screen?

  • 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.'"
