As far as band names go, Papercuts isnt my cup of tea way too precious. But that doesnt really matter, because San Franciscos Jason Robert Quever, who is Papercuts, has just delivered one killer album. The Gnomonsong-released You Can Have What You Want is one of the better indie pop records Ive heard in recent years. Now Quever isnt lo-fi and bizarre like Ariel Pink and Kurt Vile, yet he shares with those two oddballs ability to drown listeners in moody, dreamy sounds dotted with classic hooks nicked from bubblegum, proto-punk, Brill Building, psychedelia you name it. Quever is also a member of the fantastic Skygreen Leopards, who are dropping a new album of their own this July. So yeah, this dude basically bleeds perfect pop music 24/7. With Port OBrien. All ages.
