Chicago indie pop band Paper Arrows is holding the release show for their new album, Look Alive, at Schubas tonight, March 2.
The band has a mellow, very pleasant sound highlighted by gentle guitars, chiming keys and the strong vocals of Joe Goodkin. You can listen to four cuts from Look Alive on the Paper Arrows MySpace page.
Also, check out this Redeye article from last week, which compares the band's method of spreading the word about Look Alive via free download to Radiohead's online, choose-your-own-price release of In Rainbows. The article includes an interview with Goodkin.
If you can't make it to the show, you can order a copy of Look Alive from Quell Records.
