Album Review

Reviewed 2011-05-03
Fuzzy hazy shoegazey washed-out dreampop with Shins-esque vox. Lots of gentle reverb and airyness. Very Oh, Inverted World. Slightly 60s. Super pretty. Super precious. These aren't songs so much as pleasantries, but that seems to be what the kid's going for, so. The A.V. Club calls this "the musical equivalent of a shoebox filled with old Polaroids" -- touche. Papercuts is Jason Quever, and woohoo, he's from the Bay. Bonus points: the month I joined the station, his last record was KILLING our charts.

RIYL: early Shins, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, less poppy Grandaddy

no FCCs

*1. pretty mid-fast circular guitar, slightly rocking, fuzzy vox, fuzzy everything.
*2. active mellow bass a la "future primitive", reachy chorus. gentle, earthy and sweet.
3. sad and ghosty-gloomy. spare haunty lyrics. deliberate achey chorus. fuzz piano.
4. either/or-era elliott smithish ambling chug-and-burst melody. upbeat melancholy. parallel vox & guitar.
5. very slow, delicate clear vox., tremolo guitars. words gush out one at a time.
6. violinsy start, takes ~45 sec to warm up. 'on purpose' lo-fi. chorus harmonies, scratchy instrumentation.
7. sweet blowy waltz. 'la la's.
8. mid-fast, kinda rocky, drum kit. sky-high watery vox.
*9. surprise gem buried in the back half. slow fingerpicking, empty-hall piano and slow-roll tambourine. lullabyish. simple, achey, beautiful.
10. gentle bubbly vibey guitar and slow drums. reminds me of that pinkle record.
