They're the new Michael Jacksons. Keeping their noses to the grindstone, Bay Area dudes Eric Frederic and beat-keeper Arjun Singh produced and recorded the wonder-wall of danceable sonic rubbish unfortunately called Doodoo Face (Eeenie Meenie). This is a very funny thang — greasy, glittery funk liberally drizzled with monster beats, aerified '80s polysynth chord garbage, supa-bowel-cleansing bass, and heavy loads of Vocoder (thank you, Roger Troutman). Check their track "I Got Soul, I'm So Wasted," where it's like irony to the 90th power, but it just doesn't matter — singer Ricky Reed creepy-croons it all out with genuine charisma, like he believes in himself (very important).

The duo's P-Funk/Arabian Prince/DeBarge/whatever-style party sleaze simply sounds real good right now. You might know Wallpaper as well, from Frederic's renegade remix/mashup of Jay-Z's "Death of AutoTune" and "99 Problems," in which the producer feeds Jay-Z's rap through, yep, AutoTune. (He also rewrites the chorus of "99 Problems" to include the line "I got 99 problems but my pitch ain't one.")
