Paper Tiger – “False Hopes” – [Doomtree Records]
A batch of moody beats and grooves from this one-man project, a member of the Minnesota hip hop collective Doomtree. It’s instrumental for the most part, except for the melancholy final track, which features Dessa on vocals. The other tracks are decorated here and there with vocal fragments. This CD is well done and enjoyable, but, well, it doesn’t say a whole lot to me; an hour after hearing it, I can’t remember much about it. I’m not really up to speed on the Doomtree thing, but I am definitely interested; I’d like to hear Paper Tiger working with a few different MCs.
