Featured Image for Papercuts


Considering the first impression of Papercuts in 2004, the lo-fi aesthetic of Mockingbird was a hazy and modern take on the old. A ‘vintage’ concept in many respects, it expressed a sort of devoted appreciation for this faded era in music that rang loud throughout the mid-sixties (much of it influenced by the UK at that time). Calling back the Zombies and perhaps some stony aftermath of love gone wrong, Papercuts’ sound is all a drifting dream from start to end.

Now with the third album around, You Can Have What You Want, highlights a strongly maturing Jason Robert Quever, a nostalgic songwriter still, but mastering his trademark sound in good form. With some heavy base line and raspy drum — not to mention those chiming organ pipes — the music seems just right, in all the wrong ways, for that recent heartache.
