Lonely the Determined & Fry Girl Stomp
'Papers have evolved. When I first saw them, they played a good mix of upbeat numbers and slower tunes. Papers would end a set with an incendiery cover of 'Take a Letter, Maria' and there was not a soul standing still. Over time, Papers have composed more complex songs and have really moved into the near ethereal zone. They have become the band I want playing in my bedroom as I drift off to sleep. Papers play dream songs, songs that at the time of eyes finally closing, will induce an experience beyond what one has come to expect from slumber. Papers also seem to be still in gestation but are so ridiculously talented that they can evolve onstage and still pull off an amazing performance. Papers are mavericks in the scope of Nebraska music. Papers take chances because they can. Papers are expansive and they will pull you into their dream if you let them.' -Eric Wickizer, Lone Prairie Records, 1 March 2005.
