PAPERCUTS

Papercuts' You Can Have What You Want is the newest phase in Jason Quever's ongoing pop investigations. The relatively earthbound happy-sad pop of Mockingbird & Can't Go Back is now launched into the vault of the skies. Here Quever delves further into epic, hazy pop using mostly vintage organs, pulsing bass & Kraut-via-Ringo-inspired drum rhythms. Intact from those earlier efforts are Quever's sense of arrangement and drama, as well as his soaring vocals, draped in reverb gauze.

The words reveal an obsession with mortality and things cosmic, while sonically the voice acts as another instrument. This obsessively all analog effort (no computer processing here whatsoever!) cuts across several eras of dreamy sound: 80's/90's Creation & 4AD records, The Zombies, 60's French pop, even CAN's Future Days, & then there's the inevitable connection to former tourmates Beach House & Grizzly Bear. Indeed, Beach House's Alex Scally helped with some of the arrangements, but You Can Have What You Want is its own strain of addictive pop.
