Paper Thick Walls: A thousand novels (2011)

Paper Thick Walls es el nombre de un combo de Chicago que acaba de editar su primer álbum. Su música tiene mucho de la frescura y la sofisticación del Indie-Folk que facturan gentes como Los Campesinos!, Kings of Convenience o Sufjan Stevens (Old wheatered wooden dock, Orange tree, Overgrown). Ello no impide que también se acerquen al Folk más tradicional en temas más pausados como NyQuil, A thousand novels, Desolated places, Portrait, Masters of the sea, Infinite
El concepto general del álbum es que navega más a gusto por las aguas del Folk de siempre, ése que tiene mucho de melancólico y de tonos tristes; ése que ayudó a poner de moda de nuevo Fleet Foxes. Paper Thick Walls son un buen exponente de ese sonido que forma parte del acervo cultural norteamericano y que de vez en cuando vuelve a emocionar los oídos de los adoradores del género.

Paper Thick Walls – A thousand novels (2011)

“Paper Thick Walls presents an elegant mix of deep, reflective, and at times haunting music which captures elements of sound similar to acts like Arcade Fire and Sufjan Stevens.  Their songs quickly caught the attention of sound engineer Mike Hagler (Neko Case, Wilco) who engineered Paper Thick Walls’ debut album “A Thousand Novels” which will be released on May 3, 2011.  To celebrate the release of the record, Paper Thick Walls will play a record release show at Hideout in Chicago on Friday May 6th, with very special guests Derek Nelson & The Musicians.  This past year, Paper Thick Walls was asked to play at several taste maker music festivals including North by Northeast, South by Southwest, and CMJ Music Marathon. 
The harmonies of Kate Schell and Eric Michaels, the lead members and writers of Paper Thick Walls, float beautifully over the indie-folk-pop backing of intricately written string, horn, and percussion parts of a 5 piece band.  This almost orchestral arrangement has a fascinating way of complimenting the profound fictional story lines that Paper Thick Walls portray through their lyrics” (Facebook)
