Paperhaus – Nanana

DC bands come and DC bands go. Sometimes just as you discover a hidden gem in a playlist or on Bandcamp (or maybe on a podcast!) the group has parted ways and moved away from DC, as so many do. Alex Tebeleff and his electronic indie rock outfit Paperhaus have been rocking DC since 2005, promoting the band and brand with relentless touring and show hosting in his eponymous house. Go back to their self-titled EP from 2011, older even than our nearly six year old DC music station and blog, and hear how their sound has evolved through musical growth and lineup rotations. Tebeleff and current collaborators Matt Dowling, Rick Irby and Danny Bentley celebrate the release of their second full length album on Misra Records at the Black Cat Friday night with Go Cozy and Tony Kill. Check out the music video for “Nanana” and ask yourself, “Are these the questions we need to ask?”

Paperhaus – Told You What To Say

Doing It Together (DIT™) indie rockers Paperhaus truly pulled out all the stops in promoting their third full length album Are These The Questions That We Need To Ask? on Misra Records. Billboard helped rack up the play counts for their first single “Go Cozy”, and exclusive music video premieres on Tidal and Apple Music followed. “Told You What To Say” is the newest single, with a beautifully glitchy and brutalist video from three directors: photographer Chris Prosser, art director Corynne Ostermann and Flash Frequency, vet of gorgeous DC vids from Dawkins and Will Eastman. Paperhaus’s album release tour lands in DC at the Black Cat next Friday October 27th, with a choice lineup of Tony Kill, Go Cozy and DJ Alex DB.

Paperhaus – Go Cozy

Paperhaus‘s Alex Tebeleff is a superconnector in our city’s music scene. While not fronting his psychedelic four piece rock band or crafting experimental synth sounds under his solo moniker Black Lodge, Tebeleff is a prolific curator of shows through his DCDIT label at The Dew Drop Inn, Smith Public Trust and of course his own house. Many fondly remember spots like The Dunes, The Lot at Atlantic Plumbing, and the first Paperhaus because of the parties Tebeleff threw and all the familiar faces you’d see there. Now Tebeleff’s new crib has retaken the Paperhaus name for more house shows starting in August, and the band is back too with a new album Are These The Questions That We Need To Ask? dropping October 6th on Misra Records. The lead-off single’s music video, full of cameos by DC musicians and proponents, even gets its name from Homero Salazar Andrujovich’s shoegaze project Go Cozy. Superconnected.

Paperhaus – Silent Speaking

Psychedelic indie rock band Paperhaus has undergone many changes in their 7 year history as a DC band. After recently vacating their eponymous house where they ruled the DIY/DIT house show scene, core member Alex Tebeleff rejiggered the lineup to include Deleted Scenes’ Matt Dowling and Rick Irby, who also goes by the solo moniker Jau Ocean, and took the band to Philly to record under producer Brian McTear. The first single in this new era is “Silent Speaking”, and Pree’s Ben Usie made a lyric video for it that should utterly creep you out if you have Ommetaphobia (google it, I just did). Come get trippy at the Black Cat tonight as Paperhaus celebrates the release of this single and also Blight Records’ CrushnPain’s new EP All Mountains, with support from Nag Champa.

Paperhaus – So Slow video

Didn’t you get the memo? Apparently March is Ben Usie month for DC music videos. Impose Magazine premiered the newest Usie-directed music video from Paperhaus yesterday, joining the ranks of Usie’s recent creations for Young Rapids and his own band Pree. Usie’s videos are always colorfully inventive, but “So Slow” could leave you scratching your head. The video, filmed in south Louisiana, features Dorian Phibian of Cloudheavy Recording Collective preparing for a big show that may never come. Paperhaus has no shortage of shows to perform, as the band continues its push for indie rock stardom with prominent spots at SXSW and a neverending US tour supporting their recent self-titled release.

Paperhaus – Cairo video

Indie rock quartet Paperhaus have their sights set on the national stage. After Stereogum premiered their new single “Cairo” back in August, today the hugely influential site Brooklyn Vegan debuted its accompanying music video. No surprise that DC’s go-to music video creator Nigel Lyons takes the reins here, delivering a woozy, colorful romp through the 6+ minute spaced-out odyssey, with an appropriate amount of destruction thrown in. Refreshingly, despite this well-deserved push for wider recognition, Paperhaus is still firmly rooted in #DCDIT, hosting shows at their house and promoting the thriving house show scene. Paperhaus opens for Brooklyn’s Landlady at the Black Cat backstage on Monday October 13th. Hold tight for their long-awaited debut full-length album coming February 2015.

Paperhaus – All Through The Night / The Lot @ Union Kitchen

DC has always enjoyed a thriving DIY house show scene, and the last few years its undisputed king has been the Paperhaus. The house holds the indie rock band of the same name, perhaps not a cunning masterplan but as it turns out a very good way to attract positive attention to both ‘hauses. Musician and booker Alex Tebeleff puts together diverse bills of both locals and touring acts at both Paperhaus and these days at Columbia Heights events space The Dunes. Last summer and fall the nexus of DC indie music, food trucks and good times came together at The Lot at Union Kitchen, an open air party curated by Tebeleff and others. Videographer Zambia captured the scene and assembled this fun video, and what else could the soundtrack have been but “All Through The Night” from Paperhaus’s 2013 EP Lo Hi Lo? For some true DC DIY spirit, come to the Paperhaus tonight for Philly’s Son Step, St. Louis’s Sleepy Kitty and DC bands Lies About and Greenland. Enter around back & bring some money to help the touring bands get to their next gig!
