All We Know is an EP preview to a forthcoming full-length from Paper Beat Scissors and was mixed by Sandro Perri. The album uses a familiar group of musicians you may recognize from Gianna Lauren‘s current release among others on the label, and features a cover of a song by The Weather Station.
Recorded mainly in rural Ontario with Andy Magoffin (longtime engineer for Great Lake Swimmers, Constantines) and Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire)’s Skybarn studio the broad musical palette present on prior Paper Beat Scissors is expanded once more. Long-time collaborators Pietro Amato (the Luyas, Bell Orchestre – French horn) and Sebastian Chow (Islands – violin) are joined by new in the shape of the aching viola of Pemi Paull and Andy Magoffin’s alto horn contributions on ‘Didn’t Know’ with Crabtree adding piano, clarinet, and baritone saxophone to round things out.
The band will tour through Europe later this month, including a headline slot at Theatron Pfingstfestival in Munich’s Olympic Park as well as a couple of shows with Wintersleep.
