CRITIC REVIEWS

Northern Transmissions

Through enough attention to sound, great writing can be transformed into something instantly iconic. In his latest step out, Jason Quever makes pop brimming with influence as Papercuts while never feeling unoriginal in the slightest.

God Is in the TV

I don’t think I have heard an album that from the outset firmly plants its flag and proceeds to just go from strength to strength for quite some time. From track 1, until the record’s fade, this succeeds in doing exactly that.

AllMusic

Even though the album is still arranged and produced with great care and Quever's vocals and melancholy melodies are as affecting and cozy as ever, there's a bit of extra energy and spirit in these songs that give the album a huge boost and help make this the best Papercuts album yet.

Exclaim!

Parallel Universe Blues is a dreamy, laidback record made for easy listening. It's a great album with a step up in its production.

Love this, I think perhaps his best album. Think gauzy Aisler's Set with similarly fantastic retro melodies.

Papercut with a solid shoegazy, indie pop record that sounds dreamy for the daydreamers.
