Paper Sky

Image of Paper Sky


Paper Sky is Weaver's fifth album. The restless, prolific songwriter has been praised as “riveting” (No Depression) and “a startling talent” (Time Out London) that “tells amazing stories” (Utne Reader) in his evocative songs populated by birds, phone booths, lovers, and plastic bags stuck in trees.

On Paper Sky, Weaver sets off to explore “urban and industrial themes that I hadn’t touched before.” With the aid of producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Califone, etc.), Weaver employs crinkly synthesizer textures and other mutilated sounds in the service of his haunting, hushed melodies.
