You probably didn’t know this about us, but sometimes we like to dance (A lot!) Following the trend of indie dance music like Girl Talk, Ratatat and M83, Oakland’s own Wallpaper is our newest obsession at Modern Mystery.
Following their ‘T Rex’ Ep they released earlier last year, Wallpaper put out the record again in late December, but this time as a Remix album titled ‘T Rex RMXd’. We can’t stop listening to either version quite frankily, and the video for ‘Evrytm We Do It (RA Maury Remix)’ has certainly grabbed our attention. Dancing street worker=Hillarious. Eric Frederic in rainbow art=Awesome. Check out the video for this song. It will leave you wanting more.

2009 is already starting out to be a great year for new records. Case in point, Great Northern will be releasing ‘Remind Me Where the Light Is’on April 28. One of the first tsongs that has caught our attention is titled ‘Houses,’ and it is definitely making us count the days until the album’s release. Racheal Stolte’s voice gets more brilliant every time I hear it. Great Northern will also be putting out a limited edition 7″ with it. Nice. This is the kind of band that sends chills down your spine whenever you hear them. Live, they are just as phenomenal .
In addition to all of this the band is also involved with The Gooseberries project that is coming out soon. This is a collection of portraits in an LP Sleeve (that also includes a dvd of interviews, etc.) along with other great bands such as Silversun Pickups, Earlimart, and Rogue Wave.
