More info on Papercuts after the break
Papercuts are a soft indie pop project centered around Jason Robert Quever, who was brought up in a commune in Humboldt County, CA. He traveled up and down the West Coast, eventually settling in San Francisco. Quever’s work began when he used the apartment of a vacationing friend to record piano tracks for Cass McCombs. He has kept busy since, collaborating with such artists as Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, the Skygreen Leopards, and Vetiver, and Papercuts have toured with artists like Camera Obscura, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, and Deerhoof. Following an early release on Owen Ashworth’s label Cassingle USA, Papercuts released their first proper album, Mockingbird, on Antenna Farm in 2004. Can’t Go Back and You Can Have What You Want followed on Gnomonsong, and the band jumped to Sub Pop for 2011′s Fading Parade.
