Sick Room Records/Africantape
"The Difficult Age" opens up with a momentary shot of intensity and dials back into a slowed stream of low level guitar phrasing, melody at play before the song shifts into loose distortion. Some of the chords employed recall Fugazi or Jawbox, those back and forth guitar swipes could either qualify as perfectly discontent or effectively out of tune. It's an evocative release, but Papier Tigre puts a distinctive spin on it, (excuse the pun), crafting two very good sides diverse enough to exhibit range and avoid monotony.
