Mp3 exclusive: Paper Thin Stages

Paper Thin Stages: "Gravity? Fuck gravity."

They’ve only been a band for three years, but the members of PAPER THIN STAGES have been playing music together since they were "very young" — fourth grade to be exact — according to singer/guitarist Nate McDermott. And somehow that's no surprise given the fluent dynamic shifts and knotty arrangements on Progress Toward Ranks, the band’s new EP for the Pittsburgh-by-way-of-Boston indie imprint Sort of Records, which marries oblique, Slint-y guitar lines, fat distorted bass, and precise-yet-powerful drums with a Fugazi-like synergetic force. For those of you not versed in indierockspeak, that means they're good. In celebration of PTR, PTS share an unfuckwithable bill on Thursday, April 13 (that would be tomorrow) with WILDERNESS, PARTS & LABOR, and POLARIS MINE at T.T. the Bear’s Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge | 617.492.BEAR. Your first taste, served with a right and a click, below.
