PAPA’s EP/12″ A Good Woman is Hard to Find it out now.
We met up at Christian’s place in Silver Lake on a Tuesday, the same place I’d filmed WATERS a couple months back, but this time we didn’t try and all cram into the kitchen. These days, PAPA is one of those bands that you keep hearing their name popping up everywhere (at least in LA), and while sometimes that buzz can come and go without much warrant, these guys are some of the few that truly deserve it. Impeccable musicianship aside, the songwriting is the band’s real strong point, managing to balance their super-catchy melodic hooks with a timelessness that still manages to feel current. All in all, it was still a bit ambitious to try and track the full band, who’s drum-centric drive isn’t exactly suited for stripped-down acoustic sessions, but for what it is I think it turned out alright.
