Back in April, Oakland club destroyer Wallpaper. dropped their T REX ep – a five song batch of bump and artistry. T REX, a platinum-meets-polyester release, carved new ground even as it paid tribute, and promised to tweak perception throughout. This glitz ‘n’ grit champion of the groove has since become a gilded name in the underground, wooing crowds with a computerized croon, live reinventions of R&B classics, and tales of excess in the Information Age. Wallpaper. has blown spots alongside such notables as LCD Soundsystem, Does It Offend You, Yeah?, The Lovemakers, Dan Deacon, Erol Alkan, LA Riots, Electric Soft Parade, and more.
On December 23, the T REX ep will be re-released in new form, as T REX RMXd. Enlisting the help of friends Andrew Maury of The Remix Company, Bomarr of Restiform Bodies (Anticon), and Brooklyn-based Skabb to remix the ep, Wallpaper. breathes new life into the songs that earned them the SF Weekly Music Award in the Dance/Electro category. T REX RMXd will be available exclusively at iTunes for the first month at the super low price of $1.99. Just in time for your New Years’ party!
