Love the Things Your Lover Loves (AKA Valentines Day EP) Cover art

In advance of their next album release in May 2016, Love the Things Your Lover Loves, Papernut Cambridge released an EP of three songs in February as a Valentine special. The EP features a remix of the upcoming album’s title track plus two non-album songs “Number 33” and “Valentine Neversent” taken from the Papernut archives, 1999 and 1995 respectively. “Love the Things Your Lover Loves” is a pop-psych song with a catchy melody providing advice for the lovelorn. “Number 33” is a mellow love song with a Beatles-style message that lasts almost eight minutes. And “Valentine Neversent” is an introspective/moody song with acoustic guitar, lots of reverb, and Mellotron. Quite a nice tune to close out the EP. These three songs, in my opinion, are better than what I have heard on their last two albums. That being said, I am looking forward to the next album.
