About Papercuts:

Over the course of five albums as Papercuts and an enviable resumé recording and producing artists like LunaBeach House and Cass McCombsJason Quever has shown himself to be a top-notch song-writer and producer, equally at home with lush, baroque textures and more stripped-down arrangements.

Papercuts’ new album Parallel Universe Blues has a sound that is intimate and close, nicely balancing the sonic concerns of the last few Papercuts records: perfect Spectorian pop songs echoed down through The Velvet Underground, LA’s Paisley Underground, Spiritualized and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Songs like “Laughing Man,” “How To Quit Smoking,” “Sing To Me Candy” and “Clean Living” are all gorgeous, melodic gems, never sacrificing song-writing for atmospherics and bringing to mind late night/rainy day albums like “Darklands” and “Chelsea Girl.”Parallel Universe Blues is a triumph and points to more great things in the future from Quever and Papercuts.
