Sometimes, in the middle of reading the 10,000th blog comment of the day about how San Francisco's gone to shit, it can be good  to remember that — if you take a deep breath, step back, and tune out the hum of the Google buses for a moment — this is a damn beautiful place to live. 

That's the overwhelming feeling we're left with after watching this new video for "Take You Home," by S.F. indie-pop five-piece The Tropics. The song was previously a vinyl-only track on their debut EP, Wind House , out last October on Breakup Records; now, thanks to S.F. director Frank Door (the man responsible for the video for the band's single "Fireproof," an excellent shot-by-shot remake of the video for Marky Mark And The Funky Bunch’s “Good Vibrations"), the track gets some breezy, local-love-filled visuals all its own, with the band's adventures around the city interspersed with live footage from a December show at Brick & Mortar Music Hall. 

Check it out below. The Tropics play the Rickshaw Stop on Jan. 16, opening for the Swedish popster Tove Styrke.

  • 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.'"
