  • Wallpaper's Ricky Reed and Arjun Singh
Maybe you were lucky enough to be at Treasure Island in the noon hour this past Saturday, when Oakland dance-pop outfit Wallpaper's Ricky Reed and Arjun Singh sent a loving midday crowd into a hip-shaking frenzy along with a battery of hand drummers. If you were, you would've heard this newish tune, "Indian Summer." If you weren't, well, trust us: Wallpaper's new banger is worth a listen.

Reed (given name: Eric Frederic) explained onstage that he'd recently finished this song, and it certainly sounds it was inspired by the kind of late-summer weather we were having up until this past weekend. It's got a quick tempo, multi-layered percussion, lyrics about a lady dancing in the street, falsetto vocals via Reed, and a breezy, synth-laden chorus about feelin' good. Summer proper may be gone for 2010, but the Bay Area version lives on in this song.

  • 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.'"
