Interview: Wallpaper. plays a Bay Area festival for the very first time

In the spirit of the upcoming Treasure Island Music Festival October 16-17, The Bay Bridged had a chat with Wallpaper. The local band is scheduled to play on Saturday, along with a number of other dance-friendly electro acts. This is the last in our series of interviews leading up to the festival. Previous interviews have featured Surfer Blood, Phantogram, and the Mumlers. The most interesting musicians are almost always the ones that deftly walk a fine line between two halves of some fundamental contradiction - bands that hide gorgeous melodies under an ocean of sonic chaos or rappers whose lyrics [...]

Review: Wallpaper., OONA @ The Independent, 5/7

Photos by: Anna Gazdowicz OONA kicked off an East Bay artists' dance party at the Independent Friday night with full band in tow. Oona Garthwaite has been honing her act around the Bay for a few years now, and it shows. Oona's music incorporates a broad palette of styles - soul, funk, latin and bouncy early 80's-style synth-pop - into a distinct groove. While much of the music on her recordings comes from the mind and machines of collaborator Dave Tweedie, she wisely adapts it to a more organic band setting live. Her musicians play tight and hard and match [...]

Noise Pop 2010: Wallpaper., The Limousines, Butterfly Bones @ Slim’s

Butterfly Bones - "xoxo" Due to a boppingly unmissable Noise Pop Happy Hour at Benders and a wicked long line at (sold-out!) Slim's, I unfortunately missed Battlehooch's set at the Wallpaper./Limousines co-headlined show Friday night, but Butterfly Bones wasted no time in cheering me up. The electro-pop-rock quartet have definitely been coming up in the San Francisco scene. According to some cursory research and the look on the guys' faces, they'd never played a venue the size of Slim's before. Still, the band didn't have any trouble filling the stage with their glee, the venue with their buds [...]

Noise Pop 2010: Friday Preview

As the week ends, Noise Pop 2010 only gets bigger for the weekend, with Atlas Sound returning to the Great American Music Hall with Nice Nice (Portland), Magic Wands and Geographer. Nice Nice - "Ark Drum" Also on Friday night are two outstanding all-local bills, sounding vastly different from each other. In the school of rambunctious folk rock, consider The Mumlers, Sonny and the Sunsets and The Ferocious Few with The Growlers at Cafe du Nord. You know the Ferocious Few if you travel through Mission BART stations, or from their explosive set at Rock Make last year; [...]
