Jerry Paper Made Us A Mix, Has Two Full-Lengths Coming

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.
