Unsolicited Song of the Week: Voices Carry

From Nashville, Tennessee and their forthcoming CD, please enjoy indie-pop rockers Paper and their instantly addictive "Everybody Talks."

Paper is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist and singer Mike Marsh, who also does duty in Dashboard Confessional (they're one of those "Emo" bands; I'm told all the kids today just love 'em). Seriously, this song got under my skin even before the whole band kicks in (circa the two minute mark) and to my surprise I find myself genuinely looking forward to the rest of the album.

In the meantime, there's more Paper music and links over at their Facebook page, including a very nice cover of Peter Gabriel's "Solsbury Hill."

Oh, and in the interests of full disclosure, I should add that Paper's bass player is Craig Schlesinger, a much younger cousin of mine who I've never actually met. Given that he's a much better bass player than I ever dreamed of being, that's probably just as well, since I already hate the talented little SOB.
