This past summer, Paper Beat Scissors performed with NY-based contemporary classical group Clogs, sometime-members of, and regular collaborators with the National. This pairing led to an onstage collaboration recorded live at the beautiful St. Matthew’s Church during the Halifax Jazz Festival.
A-side Tendrils, a haunting contemplation on what lies just below the surface, finds new life with the added instrumentation of oboe, violin, steel drum and guitar, and features support vocals by My Brightest Diamond. B-side, Onwards is a previously unreleased song performed with a chamber ensemble of Gina Burgess (violin), Devin Wesley (oboe) and Anna Plaskett (french horn). Building on the success of the critically-acclaimed self-titled debut (March 2012), Tim Crabtree sounds as unique and focused as ever in these new sound environments.
Package is limited to 300 black vinyl 7″ records with a full-colour sleeve and comes with a postcard for a download of the 7-song digital live EP.
