The Paper Chase is to say the least an acquired taste. They play a blend of emo, jazz, hardcore punk, and even a little industrial. For the music they use everything from pianos to a recorded telephone message to constantly keep the mood, which seems to be one of paranoia and despair. The album is.

The Paper Chase is to say the least an acquired taste. They play a blend of emo, jazz, hardcore punk, and even a little industrial. For the music they use everything from pianos to a recorded telephone message to constantly keep the mood, which seems to be one of paranoia and despair. The album is a concept album of sorts, centered around relationships and breakup, even though it might be somewhat difficult to discern that seeing as a lot of the lyrics are merely part of the howling, psychotic rants of lead singer, John Congleton. Their influences include Drive Like Jehu and King Crimson and I highly recommend these guys to anyone willing to expand their horizons on what they think is punk.
