Recently signed to Devendra Banhart and Andy Cabic’s new record label Gnomonsong, Papercuts is releasing a new album next month and the first single “John Brown” was recently put up on their website. I’m really struggling with the description that the label put up about the album and song. It mentioned that it was richly textured, which I think is a synonym for the sound of air being let out of a hose. Luckly, it doesn’t sound like that and this track shows a lot of promise. “John Brown” starts off with a riff that I can only describe as the james bond theme if it were to be reinterpreted by Brian Jones. From there it bridges into a mellow folk song that is just upbeat enough that its melodic chorus hooks you in.
I also recommend going to his myspace page to listen to some tracks from his debut album:
