Black Cobra Vipers Play Art Sex, Give Interview


With Mac Demarco slithering onto the scene as some kind of hipster anti-sweetheart, I think it's safe to say slime is in. Slime is SF three-piece Black Cobra Vipers' main jam.

Of course, there's the name. I've taken a vow to start a band called Black Cobra Viper Anacondas someday.

They've got their self-proclaimed sound, "secret art sex," which, for lack of any better pigeonhole, works as well as any other; maybe something to do with yacht rock, or jazz, or lo-fi with a keyboard or something, I don't know. Sure, why not. Secret art sex it is.

Then, there's the lead singer's propensity for treating each note like a rubber band to be stretched and snapped and messed with—more pitch bends than pitches, and just about as emotive as it gets. It's really something to be reckoned with.

They put on a feverish show, and they're currently in the process of recording something, so keep your ears and schedules open. Also, they gave me some of my favorite interview responses to date.


Free Tickets: French Cassettes, Black Cobra Vipers, and Brolly at Elbo Room on November 28

I’ve got some free tickets coming your way for a show at Elbo Room on Nov. 28 featuring French Cassettes, Black Cobra Vipers, and the SF debut of Brolly.

The lineup has something for everyone—Brolly cools you down with introspective melody-centric pop (think Coldplay and Death Cab); French Cassettes warms you up with impossibly infectious, sunny grooves; and Black Cobra Vipers shakes you around with swooning vocals, and art funk flavors.

The two pairs of tickets are courtesy of Bourgeois Productions and event sponsors Faultline Studios. If you want them, send me an email at thedelisf@gmail.com, and I’ll draw the winners at random. Hint: dates are expensive, and this is some prime, date-worthy real estate.
