Papercuts: Do What You Will [mp3]

papercuts

This is what we’ve been waiting for! After Papercuts announced last year that they would be joining the Sub Pop roster, we could barely contain our excitement. Jason Quever’s dreamy psychedelic pop sound borders on shoegaze at times, and their new song, “Do What You Will”, off the forthcoming LP Fading Parade builds upon Papercuts’ existing library of great tunes.

Fading Parade doesn’t hit until March 1, which is downright agonizing. Luckily relief is on its way in the form of a 7″ single for “Do What You Will”, out the first of February. Even better, the b-side is “Thoughts On Hell” — a track not on Fading Parade! And for the die-hard Papercuts fan, pre-orders of Fading Parade from the Sub Pop website will come with a 3-song CDR containing bonus tracks.

Think about the first time you heard “Future Primitive” off You Can Have What You Want and there’s a good chance your first listen to “Do What You Will” will have a similar result: elation and excitement. That’s how it was for me.
