Jerry Paper is the casiotone crooner we need right now. His exuberant melancholy is what's going to yank us out of this muck we like to call our day-to-day. Jerry Paper realizes that "day-to-day" means "slow death" but he, like all the truest hedonists, knows that there's no party quite like annhilation. Jerry Paper doesn't give a damn that his aesthetic is three-to-five years out of style-- he's got a thrift store synthesizer and he knows how to use it. In anticipation of his first full-legnth in 2013, International Man of Misery, on Orange Milk, Jerry Paper compiled us a mix that perfectly sums up every inflection you'll hear in his music. "10 Songs To Potentiate Transcendent Experiences Of Melancholy" boasts a schmaltzy array of AOR, girl group pop, Scott Walker lounge lizardelia, Ad Hoc fave Eola, and the Beach Boys doing a bad Beach Boys impression. All vintage, all Jerry. Jerry Paper will be releasing an tape on Digitalis as well, Fuzzy Logic. Make sure to check out a cut from International Man of Misery below, and check out the tracklist to the mix after the jump.
