Paper Beat Scissors – S/T

The debut full length from the Haligonian Englander Tim Crabtree aka Paper Beat Scissors could be compared to watching a sweater unravel in reverse. Crabtree’s plucking and picking abilities begin to feel like individual stitches, putting together this warm garment of song. The allegory is a good one. His lyrics are densely poetic, imbued with life by his voice which on most songs grows from the soft and bemoaned to the tightly tuned caterwaul he is best known for. Building on the strength of his Flicker EP, his self titled debut is another excellent step forward. Pick up the 12″ and spin it while you knit.
