8/10 Ian Staff review, 27 September 2013

Papernut Cambridge is the project of Ian Button together with a few friends based on an imaginary band he had a dream about, a bit of a strange idea but an interesting one all the same, the general ethos of the project is this, to create a valued artifact on vinyl with no digital release, no extra content or remixes and that this will be the finished article, “the idea that everything points back to the vinyl as the definitive version”.

The music contained in this project is certainly one of a dream like quality, a modern take on the folk genre with a healthy list of friends and collaborators playing a varied mix of instruments such as piano, keyboards, saxophones, whistling, along with standard guitars, bass and drums.

Cambridge Nutflake is an album trapped in a moment of time, it has a warmth and richness to it, like a folk album with a ‘90s indie production, Ian’s vocals have a certain Manchester swagger to them almost like Tim Burgess fronting Fairport Convention. Songs like ‘Ink Run’ and ‘The Old Man In His Raincoat’ have echoes of the Mick Head fronted Pale Fountains and Shack while more psychedelic moments on ‘Listen To It Rain All day’ and ‘Laundromat Dream’ have a splash of Tame Impala about them. It’s pretty safe to say that Papernut Cambridge is a very original and interesting sounding record, it’s not part of any scene or fashion, it kind of doesn’t seem to fit in anywhere but that’s where it’s strength lies, in its sheer timelessness.


8/10 sel Customer review, 5th October 2015

An album like a friend.

Genuine, kind... it's there when you need it, never annoys you, is never loud or playing up. Precious, not pretentious. Reminds you of loads of things you like to hear, but never "sounds like..."

It is an album of friends, Ian Button (Thrashing Doves, Death in Vegas) has once more gathered his friends (Darren Hayman, Robert Halcrow, Robert Rotifer, Ralegh Long, Marco Magnani, Lucy Joplin, JJ Crash, Mary Epworth and Will Twynham) around him to record ten beautifully quiet, pearls of music.

The album itself is beautiful too: stunning artwork by Alex Templeton Ward and silver/ transparent vinyl.
