Paperhaus

NPR Debut's Paperhaus' 1st Single

DC's psych rockers Paperhaus have announced that their 2nd EP Lo Hi Lo will be coming out May 28. In the meantime, NPR has shared their first single off it on the show All Songs Considered. The track "Helicopters" (below) is a glimmering example of the sweet tinge of lo-fi shoegaze tones layered with indie rock elements that reminds of a clash between Longwave and the Strokes. Love it. -Dawn

Catch them in Richmond at Bauhaus on 3/22 and Charlotesville at Random Row Books on 3/23.

   

Mittenfields, Paperhaus, Me and This Army at Black Cat 4/30

Monday 4/30 is gonna be a stellar night of indie noise as three amazing locals take to the Black Cat stage. The phenom DC quintet Mittenfields are back from a Texas tour with some new material on top of the unique 90's indie meets noise pop sound they are known for off their EP The Fresh Sum. Joining the bill are Paperhaus, DC's own meld of psychedelic/blues rockers who've turned their home studio into a sweet gig space known as The Paperhaus, which so happens to be the name of their EP released last Sept. And get there by doors open to check out Baltimorean pop alt. rockers Me and This Army (noms for Band of the Month!) who've got some new material up on Soundcloud following their 2011 EP release Souls.

It's all happening at the Black Cat on Monday Apr. 30, doors @8 PM, $8.
