Are We All Forgotten EP
My first glimpse of Paper Route was through their Myspace page which didn’t overly impress me so I moved on. When talking with Howie from Low vs Diamond a few months back (link to interview here), he mentioned they’d be stopping back in Chicago. As it turns out, Paper Route was going to be opening for them. So, I took another look at the Nashville quintet and in my search for more information on the band, I stopped off at their website. HOLY SHIT!
Hit the link for the rest of the review, it’s worth it.
I’ve gotta say, I have never been overly impressed by a bands website…and, I still haven’t because I don’t consider it a website; it’s simply visual extension of their Are We All Forgotten EP, brilliant. The video is the perfect complement to the music; It reflects the swells of the synths and the ebb and flow of the vocals precisely. I haven’t had such a strong reaction to music since I first heard Radiohead back in high school. Keep in mind my reaction to Radiohead was heavily influenced if you catch my drift…
Now I’m spoiled. I can’t imagine listening to this album any other way. I have it ripped to my PC but I still find myself heading to the website for the full effect. Well done Paper Route, well done.
