MP3 of the Day: Wallpaper

Posted By on Fri, May 9, 2008 at 8:59 AM


In the current issue of the Weekly, Ezra Gale describes local dance commanders Wallpaper as "trashy synth-pop riding garage-sale drum machine beats as a singer wails about 'going big on the weekends' ... Synthesizers whirr, drum machines thwap, and Reed (who sounds as if he stole the Vocoder from Cher's "Believe" session and implanted it in his larynx) rattles on about text messages. If Justin Timberlake were broke and had a sense of humor, he'd probably sound like this."

So this sunny Friday couldn't be a better time to get Wallpaper's "Evrytym We Do It" to get your weekend thwapping in style. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
