NPR streams Paperhaus debut, band tour (2015)

NPR’s First Listen is streaming the self-titled debut from Paperhaus all week.  Paperhaus will be released February 10.
Paperhaus is a band that has always had serious ambition, and maybe things were moving too fast. Quitting their jobs to pursue music full time, jumping in a van for their EP Lo Hi Lo to tour the country, even living together for two years in the DIY music venue/space The Paperhaus in DC. This song talks about going “So Slow,” but it’s really a song birthed from a time when things were moving too fast, without taking the opportunity to look around to see how you are really feeling, in that moment.
Luckily, this album, recorded live to tape at what is now knows as The Blighthouse studio house in Petworth in the aforementioned sweaty pressure of personal tension and literal severe heat, serves as a document of the time, and the energy that was there, as well as a perfect introduction to the sounds of Paperhaus.
