Trip-hop act Paper Tiger has the distinction of having shared the stage four times with UK producer Simon Green, aka Bonobo. Says front woman Molly Kummerle, “He’s a brilliant musician and producer, and has always been at the top of our peer list. We have some really special treats up our sleeves for this show.”
According to a press release, “Over the last couple of years, Bonobo has become one of the premier artists on the Ninja Tune imprint and certainly one of the most listened to, with over 16 million plays recorded on LastFM. His combination of superb live shows and studio wizardry means that he is now perfectly placed to push on into a yet bigger league.”
Paper Tiger certainly has a big league sound. Lush, dreamy, futuristic and emotive, the project was originally conceived of by Kummerle and producer Mingle. The current live lineup includes Kummerle with Dave Mathes on drums and Peripheral on keyboards and samples (both of Sonmi), Chuck Lichtenberger (Stephanie’s id) on melodica, and live video by Ben Mason.
The Orange Peel show starts at 9 p.m., tickets are $15 in advance or $17 at the door.
