What a glorious discovery this record was for me. The luscious composition of Paper Beat Scissors’ Flicker tugs at the soul like an anchor. Song writer, Tim Crabtree, has an expert approach to his recordings, balancing their fragility with the taut string arrangements and the swallowed vocals that pour forth as though constantly being choked back. I strongly recommend this record to fans of forward thinking folk music. Paper Beat Scissors is playing in Edmonton tonight with Saskatoon’s electronic talent, Zombifyus, and Edmonton’s own Ghost Cousin. The show is at Wunderbar at 8pm, only 5 bonez. The information is available here. Perhaps I will see you there. Happy Labour Day, my scuzzy Proletariat brethren!
