MP3 At 3PM: Papercuts

papercuts450San Francisco’s Papercuts (a.k.a. Jason Quever) is now on a multi-national tour to promote the just-released electro-folk You Can Have What You Want (Gnomonsong). Produced with Beach House’s Alex Scully, the rhythmic, organ-infused, analog-only album is as authentic and peculiar as an Edward Hopper painting; a bright but lonely landscape that makes you cheerful and queasy at the same time. On the title track, Quever’s voice drips with sentiment, the layers of guitar, bass and keyboard seeping through the speakers and wrenching your heart out like that time you stumbled upon a picture of you and the ex in the back of your dresser drawer.
