CMJ 2011: Paper Garden Records Showcase Review

The Spotlight

First day of CMJ: check. We stuck to our guns and holed up at the Living Room for the afternoon, treating ourselves to the best Paper Garden Records has to offer.

Keep your eyes on Discover as we roll out interviews from these artists and more in the coming weeks

We caught the very last song from Iceland’s Dad Rocks!, entering the cozy back room as Snævar Njáll Albertsson enthralled the audience with an a capella serenade. He followed his ethereal coo’s with an impressive display of fingerpicked guitar that recalled another guitarist from the cold North, The Tallest Man On Earth. Snævar’s tunes have more energy and bombast though, most often accompanied with enough bells and whistles to make Sufjan Stevens blush. His live show was the opposite affair, stripped bare to an acoustic guitar and voice. A handful of hours in to CMJ, and we already regret missing a full set.

Sorry, you missed out! This song is no longer available.
