On May 19th, 2014, Papercuts paid a visit to KEXP and played a four song set. The indie pop band, led by Jason Robert Quever, played two songs from this year's Life Among the Savages, as well as two songs from previous albums.

Papercuts' music is a pleasant, easy listen. Quever's dreamy vocals are interwoven with the mellow, beautifully-produced music. The group's music is smooth and easy to take in and the band performed admirably. Quever is known for telling stories in his songs, as KEXP host Cheryl Waters comments, “Those two songs are just two perfect examples of how your songs are like little short stories.” Even though the songs' lyrics are beautiful and weave relatable stories of isolation, the tracks are not typical pop songs. The music itself is full of feeling and emotionality, but these are not songs that would make audiences shout the lyrics back at the band. However, if you find yourself lounging around your home on a rainy day, it would be hard to find a better record to accompany your melancholy.

During a short interview, Quever claims, "It's never about real life." So grab some headphones and let the Papercuts take you to a world a little less chaotic than the one we're in.
