We rambled earlier this week about that spooky new four-song Audiobook EP from rising S.F. rap duo the Jealous Guys. But here they've gone and done something we just can't ignore. Check out this gorgeous new black-and-white video for the song "Miss San Francisco," which is essentially the duo's ode to their native city. Its lyrics reimagine the place as a woman, leading to all sorts of interesting asides and portrayals. And the video footage of various locales -- a fog-enshrouded Golden Gate Bridge, dim Chinatown streets, and various back alleys -- is a treat even if you're used to looking at this place every day. Watch the video after the jump.

Also, the clip was directed by S.F.'s own Lady Tragik:

  • 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.'"
