Papercuts – A Sting of Consciousness
Highly anticipated 2009 album from Jason Quever’s cosmic Dream-Pop project, their third album overall. Quever is a guest member of numerous bands including Vetiver, Beach House, and Skygreen Leopards, and the living room/recording studio wizard behind numerous others (Casiotone For the Painfully Alone, Cass McCombs, Donkeys, and more). – Amazon.com
This dreamScape Rock will not disappoint. It is a soothing sound that if one lacks caution, will suck you into its lyrical backdrop and deposit you convincingly into a truer world.
Consider these lines:
“we are born to this world out on loan from the beyond when its time to return I won’t be looking in the mirror” and “what you wanted was your life but you’ll get something more” – Future Primitive
“where you are now will be shadow of the world you will have known” – The Machine Will Tell Us So
The author is grasping for meaning; a deeper truth in an otherwise deceptive and self-deluded world. Next stop will be truer, richer and fuller, while we look back at a faded image that spoke of possibilities, but never fulfilled the promises we deeply aspired to. Come along for the ride, the air is clearer further up.
