Today is the first release of my new project, In Other Words, which will consist of four separate EP releases this year. Each release will have its own feel based on a set series of albums that have had a super influential effect on me. To make the music I recorded some friends of mine (Dessa, Aby Wolf, Jessie Daley) singing some vocal lines that I then manipulated and recorded my friend Nate Kinsella playing some drum tracks. Oh man you guys, it makes me so happy to be putting out new solo stuff. It’s been a minute. OK, talk to you soon.

Paper Tiger is responsible for the production on many of Doomtree’s most crowd-pleasing singles, including “Low Light Low Life” from P.O.S, Mike Mictlan’s “Game Over,” and Dessa’s “Call Off Your Ghost.” He’s got an ear for contagious, synthy melodies and a marked nostalgia for the 90s. Aside from his own projects and crew productions, Paper Tiger also doubles as Doomtree’s live DJ. He’s spun at the X-games, toured North America and Europe on the crew’s epic No Kings and All Hands tours, and has built a reputation as a solo artist in his own right. His most recent releases have earned stellar reviews at home and from national critics. Vita.mn called his music “elegant and cinematic;” and Pitchfork praised his “crisp drums, excellent production and interesting mixes.”
