It’s a rare to come across an artist who’s equally skilled in songwriting, singing and production but lone-arranger Jason Quever, better known as San Francisco’s Papercuts is a master of all trades. That the pocket-sized symphonies of brand new album Life Among the Savages are set to see the light of day is through nothing but meticulous focus - due to his whizz-kid knack for ...

I'm pretty new to the mp3 store but not new to music at all and I have to say this is one of my favourite albums from the past few year or so.

Apparently, the main dude behind Papercuts does some production stuff outside the band and it really shows as the album is just a joy to listen to. It's fairly consistent too in the quality of the songs, though maybe a tad better than You Can Have.. in that regard.

Really heavy use of keys too, which I don't usually like but it seems to really fit with Papercuts. Poor and Free was one of the first tracks I heard by them and this album reminds me of that track and basically plays to the bands strengths.

What a fantastic find Papercuts are!

This is a stunning indie pop record in the vein of Belle and Sebastian, Best Coast, Sonic Youth meets Fleet Foxes and My Morning Jacket!

Beautiful haunting echo of a voice over swirling indie guitars. Love it. Love it.

Thanks to 6 music for chucking this into the day time mix. Thanks to Subpop for delving around the periphery of US anglophilia. Thanks to Jason Robert Quever for persevering into album 4 and properly delivering something that sounds utterly 2011 while seeming to be channelling the spirit of late 80's Northampton and Bristol indie. Like the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, The Vaccines and most of the bands on the really rather special Captured Tracks label the joyous influences of a certain U.S. indie scene happen to be a select group of obscure indie acts that cultishly seeped across the Atlantic and over a generational gap have created a whole bunch of acts from the U.S. that do more for 'indie' than most new bands that seem to blare forth from the UK hype trumpet. Fading Parade in its splendid vagaries has more in common with(mostly ignored in the UK) The Clientele. All about reverb soaked atmosphere and sepia tinted wonder - there's a style and elegance in some of these tracks that enables the cd to grow into your subconscious like a gut full of cocoons waiting to hatch. Emotional, honest lyrics and a timeless real, true indie sound. One of the best albums of 2011.

Cuts Both Ways 1 Mar. 2011
By Natty Soltesz - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Another Papercuts release, another opportunity for Jason Quever to get grudging respect from critics and next to no response from the listening public. I just don't get it. In my mind, Quever is producing some of the most intriguing and evocative melodies of any songwriter today.

That said, "Fading Parade" is a bit of a mixed bag. The sequencing feels a little off, it doesn't flow quite right. But there is much transcendence to be found, particularly in the one-two punch of "Do You Really Wanna Know" and "Do What You Will." He's still got the gift, folks, and there's a certain confidence here that bodes well for the future, from an album title that seems to sum up the band's sound to the fuller, bolder arrangements. Not to mention Quever's voice, which has always been his secret weapon. He lets it loose here, and it soars higher than ever.

Dream Pop new entry 26 April 2011
By M. Buisman - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Dream pop keeps producing new fine records and Papercuts latest disc `Fading Parade' is another keeper. Beach House set the standard last year with the excellent `Teen Dream' and Papercuts adds another to the list.

From the opener "Do You Really Wanna Know" (a slowed down Drums song) on we can hear the soft, almost muffled production and the double tracked hazy vocals. "I'll See You Later I Guess" starts off as a baroque 60s song fitting the Zombies and Procul Harum mold before melding into more Beach Housy stuff. When we mention Beach House we have to point out the great track "Wait Till I'm Dead".

The voice, though weak, is perfect for the music but it is a good thing the album is as long as it is. More would become too boring and bring the album down. His voice is in the high range and sometimes sounds like Nico.

`Fading Parade' is a good example for a Dream Pop album. It doesn't break any musical boundaries and is too similar to other, and better, bands in the genre, but `Fading Parade' might nevertheless end up on some end-of-the-year lists.
