Tonight on Local/Live: Paper Holland


Paper Holland is a four-piece band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin whose full-length debut album, Happy Belated, it set to be released, early 2013. If Rob Crow wasn’t so damn weird, his music might sound like Paper Holland. The title track to Happy Belated has Pinback-like wandering bass sharing the melody with rhythm guitar. The vocals (again, much like Pinback), deliberately rise and fall, rise and fall, rise and fall. Moving to the chorus, though, is where Paper Holland strays from the Pinback model and into their own. It’s the hook. Verses lead effortlessly into a pure pop hook chorus. It’s wonderful. Tune in Tuesday at 8 p.m. to hear that hook for yourself on another edition of Local/Live – 91.7 FM on your radio dial or stream live or in the archives at
