We’ve been busy and got tons of tales to tell, so straight on to it:
PAPIR release new album in less than a month - pre-orders up now at:
Papir has the unique ability to transform heavy, psychedelic music into something fresh. Sure, Papir knows their kraut- and progrock history, but unlike the majority of bands in the present day psych-rock scene they venture far beyond mere pastiche. By now the bands concerts have become awe-inducing experiences, earning them slots at major European festivals including Roskilde (2012), and Roadburn (2014).
It's stunning to witness how Papir pull numerous influences together with natural ease in these three lengthy excursions. It sounds inspired.
Not only is Papir IIII heavier than previous their efforts, it seems more lush and atmospheric as well. It is the sound of a band fulfilling its potential. Onwards and upwards.
But don’t just take out word for it - check out the awe-introducing force of the opening track Papir.IIII.I:
We’re amazed to bring you this centerpiece exactly one year since the revered III was release - the album that really put Papir on the map. We had to reprint it a few months later, so grab that while you’re at it: http://elparaisorecords.com/releases/papir-III
Papir IIII is available as LP including mp3 download card - packed in a heavy duty recycled sleeve. Every order of this album from the El Paraiso shop gets a sheet of limited El Paraiso stickers! As well as an oversized heavy duty catalogue card. All our orders are packed in sturdy double sided cardboard boxes.
The following months will bring a new solo album by Jakob Skøtt - Taking the leap from his debut Doppler’s introvert kosmische synthesizer dronescapes diving into a full blown mad scientist one-band mode, Jakob straps on a wide array of heavy percussive modes to fuel his vivid utopia of analogue synths and drums. It’s one man’s vision as crazed and wiggied as it is soothing and compelling.
Also to come this spring is Causa Sui: Live at Freak Valley! Full 90 minute set produced by Causa Sui’s Jonas Munk, this one will have your eyes and ears popping out. We’re thrilled to finally get a live record out, and that summer show at midnight in a damp valley in Germany simply had everything click.
More on these new releases in a little while! Meanwhile, turn up the heat, grab a cold one, crank it up and get that El Paraiso-vibe going!
