This week's cover story is about Wallpaper., a multi-media extravaganza of music, videos, performances, and booty tweets, headed by songwriter/producer/remixer Eric Frederic. He's a one-man symbol of the fracturing music industry--where, even when you have the chops to get ahead, success comes in random spurts.

At its core, Wallpaper. is a very entertaining act, which has helped the duo of Frederic and drummer Arjun Singh sell out clubs in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Sacramento.

They're headlining a show a Rickshaw Stop this Saturday, where you can witness the audio/visual dazzle in person. But we also have here a couple Wallpaper. tracks for the streaming.

Here's Wallpaper. original "I Got Soul, I'm So Wasted" another original, "Gettin Drip," (both off the new album, out yesterday, Doodoo Face), and the remix of Das Racist that became a summer anthem, "Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell."

You can also check out the video for "I Got Soul, I'm So Wasted," which won an mtvU contest and is in rotation on that channel now, below.

  • 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.'"
