Papercuts: Mockingbird

Papercuts is the musical moniker of San Francisco songwriter Jason Robert Quever and today I've been listening to a few tracks from his 2004 release, Mockingbird. This album is lush to the senses and utilizes every ounce of it's sparse instrumentation to the fullest. Whether it's the organ underlay on Pan American Blues Pt. 2, the drumming parade on Poor and Free, or Quever's seemingly soft vocals, Papercuts envokes a kingdom of musical delight.

"Over the last few years, Jason has also worked with some of San Francisco's most prominent young songwriters, namely Cass McCombs and Owen Ashworth of Casiotone For The Painfully Alone. Jason acted as multi-instrumentalist/ engineer for the first two Cass McCombs releases on Monitor Records/4AD, and has played with CFTPA, Duster, and many others. Additionally, both Cass and Owen have been members of Papercuts at one time or another..." Antenna Farm Records
