Xiu Xiu Play The Chapel in San Francisco - 3/19

San Jose's Xiu Xiu performs live at the Chapel on March 19th. This legendary Bay Area will be playing all over the country in support of their new album, FORGET.

FORGET was recorded during a period of epic productivity for Xiu Xiu. While writing FORGET, they released the lauded Plays the Music of Twin Peaks, collaborated with Mitski on a song for an upcoming John Cameron Mitchell film, composed music for art installations by Danh Vo, recorded an album with Merzbow and scored an experimental reworking of the Mozart opera, The Magic Flute. All of this frantic, external activity lead to a softly damaged dreaminess and broadened intent that has not been heard before in other Xiu Xiu works. The album was produced by John Congleton (Blondie, Sigur Ros), Greg Saunier of Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu's own Angela Seo.

Video Premiere: Nine Pound Shadow - Tell Me Why

We're always pleased to premiere new Bay Area music! The Bay Area based band, Nine Pound Shadow has released a brand music video entitled, Tell Me Why. The band is comprised of brothers, Breandain and Christopher Langlois who create a very California sort of sound, one whose lineage and mythology goes as far back as, well, a family tree. Tell Me Why hinges on orchestral piano chords before building into a chantable refrain. This track is haunting and touching to no end.

Nine Pound Shadow will perform live in San Francisco at The Independent on February 21st.

Take a listen and make sure you support local artists!
