After months of waiting, a big thud came: The Great Hyperbole Engine of 2011, aka Lou Reed and Metallica's collaborative album Lulu, is streaming on the project's website right now.

As we've written before, this San Rafael-recorded project is a pretty meaty thing -- many of its songs are long as hell, and the lyrics were originally written by Reed for a Frank Wedekind play of the same name. So ensconce yourself in some quality headphones and give this thing a mostly attentive listen. The first line is at least an attention-grabber.

  • 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.'"
