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.
