Papercuts sounds like an edgy name for a band doesn't it? You expect them to be some kind of spiky post-punk types with a lean, aggressive sound full of slicing trebly guitar and whip-crack drums, don't you?

Papercuts sounds like an edgy name for a band doesn't it? You expect them to be some kind of spiky post-punk types with a lean, aggressive sound full of slicing trebly guitar and whip-crack drums, don't you? Well I thought they were going to be a rock band anyway, but it turns out they're playing a timid and breathy brand of indie which reminds me of Beezewax's later offerings when they dropped the power from their pop in favour of sweeping earnestness.

The title track, for example, is all breathy falsetto, pizzicato violins and warm fingerpicked guitar, 'Family Portrait', meanwhile, is an Americana-tinged shuffle with understated vocals over a steady bed of twinkling strings and a nice rattling snare drum. To be honest, compared to some things I've heard today this isn't that bad, but it's not blowing me away either.

I have to say I'm pretty much on the side of whichever post-it imp in the office stuck a label on it saying "OK, bit ploddy and maudlin".


6/10 Serreau Customer review, 4th August 2014

Good songs but not as the other album of Papercuts (Mockingbird is the higlight, and the song "john brown" on Can't go back LP was one of great pop song of the 2000's).

Everything is a bit repetitive even if there's some good songs. Maybe a EP was better than this average LP. Jason Quever was a great producer, all songs have a atmosphere but listen it till the end, there's no great higlight or something that you can say this album is a masterpiece.

Listen to oldest Papercut's LP (espacially Can't go back and Mockingbird), they are underrated records
