Faded Paper Figures MATTER Vinyl Record
For several years now, Faded Paper Figures has been one of the best kept secrets of indie-electronic music, delivering gorgeous melodies, complex harmonies, and pop-cultural brilliance to a small and devoted fanbase online. With the release of their third album, "The Matter," the band's sound has matured into something more powerful and intense. Alternately sparse and epic, harmonic and grinding, pensive and playful, 'The Matter" takes FPF beyond their electro-pop beginnings to create something even more sincere, epic, and profound. There are moments in "The Matter" that echo the band's previous albums "Dynamo" and "New Medium" (all the glorious synth-blips, glitched-out riffs, and heartbreaking harmonies are still there), but a new sound has clearly emerged, with breathtaking orchestral scores, thick, powerful guitars, and more energetic, concentrated synths. Like the previous two albums, the lyrics glide with effortless sophistication through references both ironic and obscure. But there are passages here more intense, immediate, and playful. One moment "The Matter" conjures up images of traffic lights and factories, the next, soaring questions on the vast distances between galaxies--and always the intimate, vivid possibilities of love and pain. Given how powerfully "The Matter" astonishes with it's daring energies and thoughtful lyrics, this electro-pop secret is going to be hard to contain in the months ahead. A 'new music must-have' --New York Post 'The electro-pop band put their best foot forward here, churning out what could be the catchiest songs that Fall 2012 will see.' --TheMusicNinja.com 'you've just found yourself an instant treasure-trove of great music to listen to' --MusicUnderFire 'Faded Paper Figures merges pulsing electro-shocked grooves in the best way; in a perfect world, Owl City bro hears this and applies to law school.' --Rawkblog.net 'This is no mere indie-electronica album . . . there's something very compelling here' --TheRedAlert 'Indietronica sublimeness' --TILT Music Blog 'The most wonderful winter wooksie since Belle & Sebastian's track of the same name' -- Subba-cultcha 'Cure-all music' -- MusicUnderFire.
