PAPA – “Put Me To Work”

It’s been a little while since we’ve gotten new material from QM friends PAPA. The Los Angeles band who played one of our shows earlier this year have been hard at work on their upcoming album, and the first of it hit “The Web” today. “Put Me To Work” continues the sort of propellant energy from songs like “I Am The Lion King,” steadied by the cool of Darren Weiss’s even-tempered vocals. There’s still a bit of raw shape to their performance, a little roughness around the edges of a bright-eyed underdog on the brink, still very much coming into its own. To me, they sound a lot like Los Angeles.

Look out for their debut full-length in the new year. Grab the track below
