LA based multi-instrumentalist Jerry Paper experiments with a distorted, slacker sound in new track "Your Cocoon"
"Your Cocoon" is the first release for Jerry Paper since signing to Stones Throw, and comes with news of a handful of US live dates.
Co-produced by Badbadnotgood's Matthew Tavares, Paper's vocals are distorted, with the instruments sounding submerged and hazy, adding to the slacker sound.
Sitting on the spectrum somewhere between Connan Mockasin and Mac DeMarco, Paper distorts reality to make it more fun, adding his own take of funk with subtle jazzy keys and melodic, plucked strings that echo in the distance.
Speaking about the new track, Paper explained, "On stage and in recordings I embody an exaggerated version of my 'self,' pushing it to a limit where I transcend my ego, in an effort to get the audience to shed their ideas of themselves, shed their egos, and be free. Jerry Paper is me at my freest, an ego sacrifice in an attempt to get people to do the same."
"Your Cocoon" is an invitation into a warped world of psychedelic slacker sounds, creating both a contagious and completely chaotic soundscape.
