Album Review

Wallpaper is a side-project for members of New Bad Things, a band whose low-fi and utterly casual approach to bashing pop tunes is a pretty wonderful thing. Wallpaper has the same dimly recorded feel and loose melodicism, but applies them in a much more low-key environment — New Bad Things' tinny grooves and reckless pop enthusiasm are traded for a sound that's less organic, more oddly constructed, and entirely appealing. The occasional groove appears ("High Roller"), but the album's real interest lies in listening as off-kilter pop formats crop up on each new track — not all of them work, but the majority manage to surprise the listener by winding up hugely appealing despite their apparent oddity. This sort of low-fi pop experimentalism has worked for a great number of other indie projects, and it certainly works for Wallpaper — some of their constructions actually rival the work of New Bad Things, which is quite an achievement.

Damn Good

Eric Frederick (of facing new york/wallpaper) is a genius. This e.p. is a nice transition for him into the electronic/dance music scene considering Facing New York is more progressive, experimental rock. Whatever music you're into, you can most liklely find a small piece of this album to listen to over and over again. Watch out for live shows in the bay, they're incredible.

A+MAZING !

Wallpaper. is seriously like my new favorite! They're coming out with a new CD sometime this month [may `o7'] &&it sounds pretty good, I love the eclectic-ness of them, I love "Fat Money".

Genius.

This album is unlike anything I have come across since I first heard it all those years ago. Perhaps it is intended to be stupid or a parody but for me the strange low fi sounds paired with the strange broken lyrics all just line up to make something oddly perfect. This album holds a special place in my heart and I am understanding but disappointed in this artist's later work. I got you though; you want mass appeal.

Biography

Formed: 2006 in Oakland, CA

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Led by Oakland, California native Ricky Reed, Wallpaper. fuses hip-hop, pop, and dance music in a carefree, occasionally pointed fashion. After a pair of EPs in 2006 and in 2008, the first Wallpaper. album, Doodoo Face, was released in 2009 on Eenie Meenie. Reed dished out lighthearted and Auto-Tune-treated lyrics about partying over productions that seemed equally inspired by '80s electro-pop and contemporary mainstream rap. #STUPiDFACEDD (2011) followed on Hype Music in a similar manner.
