Artist: Paper Airplane Track: "Fire Escape" Album: Middlemarch!

Listen

You're already rocking "First Time I Thought About It," one of the gems on the 2007 Alive! local music compilation, so check out this track. It continues the sunny but pensive indie-pop that Ryan Horns and crew have been polishing during the past year or so.

Apparently, the album is already out on local imprint All Hail Records. That angers me, because I've been waiting for this disc to show up on my desk for like six months, ever since we chose this promising band as one of our Bands to Watch. [Feature here]

Alas.

The band has a few upcoming dates, so I plan to write more about them by September. For now, enjoy another one of Horns' delicate things of astonishing beauty. This time, he's in hotel rooms, pondering fire escapes.

Odd topic; great song.
