Walking Papers – photo by Dean Karr
Rhythm and blues-rock band Walking Papers returned last week with the release of WP2, the follow-up to their 2013 fabulous debut, Walking Papers. Every single person I played that debut to loved it, even though each one had different music tastes. It was amazing! You don’t need to be into rock music to enjoy this band, although I would doubt your love of rock if you said you didn’t like them. So how is WP2? Unquestionably fantastic. Talking about the album, singer/guitarist Jefferson Angell said: “This record has exceeded my expectations of what I thought that might be. . . It perfectly captures the raw, explosive energy of a band primed from extensive touring while at the same time achieving the polish and elevation that comes from experimenting in the studio.” Some of my fave tracks include “Red & White,” “Yours Completely,””Before You Arrived,” “This is How It Ends,” “My Luck Pushed Back,” and, “I Know You’re Lying,” but it’s a 10 out of 10 album. To celebrate W2, Walking Papers headline the Crocodile this Saturday, January 27th. The show has now sold out, but I always always always always tell people to keep looking for tickets. I rate Walking Papers as a band I aggressively recommend seeing live. I’ve seen them at the Sunset, and I’ve seen them at the Crocodile. They know how to rock.
