The Paper Kites/By Light We Loom

When: Sat., July 23, 8:30 p.m. 2016

On their latest album of laid-back, contemplative folk rock, the Paper Kites maintain a moody grip on their bright guitars and gentle percussion. It’s a nice collection of tunes, one that works as an accent to both Sunday morning coffee and Friday night trips down the freeway. “Bleed Confusion” and “I’m Lying to You Cause I’m Lost” are two of the better cuts here, each casting entrancing messages across light melody. The album’s title, twelvefour, is a reference to the hours between midnight and 4 a.m., the nightly creative peak for artists, as frontman Sam Bentley says. “If I could sum up the album it’s about what happens when selfishness and love collide,” he told Rolling Stone.
