Papercuts Play Tuesday Night at Emo’s
Papercuts, a band based in San Francisco, gave an excellent performance at one of KUT’s daytime showcases at the Hilton during SXSW. Outstanding.
The principal songwriter, vocalist Jason Robert Quever, has a way with subtlety and delicate touches in his music that makes it very pure dream pop. It’s the vibe found throughout Papercuts’ fourth full-length, Fading Parade. There’s definitely a shoegaze element within, but not as heavy. Quever takes a less aggressive route, yet there’s no shortage of up-tempo rhythms and big, rich sound – a totally multi-faceted experience.
