Track of the Day: Papercuts

Posted By on Wed, Feb 25, 2009 at 9:19 AM


Jason Quever's folksy pop project Papercuts dropped a new record recently, You Can Have What You Want, on Vetiver's Gnomonsong label. The album has similarities to Vetiver, in its gentle, laze about by the river vibe, but Quever also treads into narcotic dream pop territory like another  Bay Area favorite, Gris Gris. Quever's a local fixture in the nu-folk circuit, but he got some out of town help for this release, recording his sophomore album for Gnomonsong with Beach House's Alex Scally.

Papercuts are one of many recommended local bands playing Noise Pop (click here for a list of others). They hit the stage tonight opening for the Mountain Goats at the Swedish. That show has sold out, but regardless of whether you hold a pair of tickets, you can check out a new Papercuts tune here. Give "Future Primitive" a listen here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
