Nothing to take the edge off a Monday like the announcement of a new record from S.F. dreamboats Sonny & the Sunsets. The dreamy indie psych-folkers announced Talent Night at the Ashram today, a new LP they'll release Feb. 17 on Polyvinyl, with the NPR debut of this wonderfully weird animated video for its first, jangly, bass-driven single, "Cheap Extensions."

Created by Oakand artist Teppei Ando, the video follows a man as he wanders a supermarket's aisles before becoming entranced by a woman with colorful hair extensions; following her leads our protagonist through a surreal urban landscape that includes, among other things, aliens and a bear, each of whom becomes similarly possessed by the extensions' magical powers.
Check it out below. The band's only Bay Area date on the books at the moment is Nov. 25 at the exclusive rich people playground that is The Battery, but we're guessing the first couple months of the year will bring them to some local venues us little people can patronize, too. We'll keep you posted.

  • 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.'"
