SOTD: “Shag Carpet” (Wallpaper)

This is a little known gem of sorts from Wallpaper, a band that was at one point signed to K Records. “Shag Carpet” is a track from On The Chewing Gum Ground (2008, K Records). This song is interesting because it’s the perfect combination of Is This It era riffage and tougher/Australian-sounding punk. Recommended listening to those of all rock and roll backgrounds, whether you prefer early 2000s revival or some of the more recent surf/lo-fi/punk stuff.
