Of course it's not his real name. Jerry Paper is the alter ego of LA based songwriter and multi instrumentalist Lucas Nathan. This is his first record for Stones Trow following on from previous records on smaller imprints. It's lo-fi soul pop was co-produced by Matty Tavares (BadBadNotGood) and guest stars Weyes Blood and Alex Brettin (Mild High Club).

Should we need any more hazy LA soft top down wobbly retro pop in the style of Mac deMarco and Homeshake then here comes Jerry Paper to deliver. His debut solo album is full of laid back songwriting mainly based around what appears to be a 1980s casio keyboard. He has a nice solid croon on him that veers nicely into falsetto from time to time.
It's a nice record to put on on summer days, the bossa nova rhythms and easy going crooning are perfect to just have on in the background. As pleasant as it all is I just can't get too excited, firstly because I've heard too much of this sound over the past couple of years and secondly because his songs don't grab you by the throat and demand to be closely listened to. It's just another guy singing about his life over some pleasant instrumentation. I may feel slightly different if I was sat on a veranda right now. There's a few decent highlights within and he's not doing anything wrong as such it's just....niceness.
