Papercuts is a name of at least two acts:
[1] A U.S. project
[2] A German / act

[1] A U.S. indie pop project centered around San Francisco songwriter / producer Jason Robert Quever, which débuted with Mockingbird (2004, Antenna Farm). The band’s next two albums were Can’t Go Back (2007, Gnomonsong) and You Can Have What You Want (2009, Gnomonsong). In 2010, they signed to Sub Pop, then released Fading Parade (2011).

Quever is the band’s only consistent member, early on playing with whoever of his friends were available. Bay area artist/filmmaker Davis Enos has been the longest standing collaborator (keys), while Frankie Koeller (bass) and Graham Hill (drums) have been regular members of the group since 2008, when the band started touring more regularly.

Quever was born in Arcata, CA, and brought up in a commune. Later he lived in various places until settling in San Francisco. He began making home recordings after buying a four-track recording desk at the age of 15, and his first work as an engineer/producer was on Cass McCombs’ Not the Way EP in 2002.

    Very happy with Life Among the Savages. Fading Parade was disappointing :/

    PaPerCuts seems to be a German band that has been confused with Papercuts

    Why is the band name suddenly stylized like a 12-year-old would type it in AOL Instant Messenger? Never seen it that way on any of their albums or...anywhere. Who changed it? Well anyway, just got into this band a few weeks ago and they're my favorite find in a long long time.

    what's great about papercuts is that everything they release is amazing and great. not one single mediocre song. slowly becoming one of my favorites. . .does anyone know where to find their first album "rejoicing songs"? can't find it anywhere.
