There’s a lot going on in these recordings by Paper Mache Kisses, led by singer Valentine Mache, whose voice has plenty of character, a classic rock swagger that oozes from every tune. On “Little Black Dress” he imbues the song’s turbulence with a dark, creepy sensuality, practically salivating over the track’s molten foundation. He then reveals a sly humor on “She Uses Me For Sex,” playing the victim of a relationship gone awry. Mache’s voice sounds absolutely great on the slow, moody “Ghost of a Memory.” We only wish the arrangements on these songs were more cohesive and, especially, that they were less lyrically repetitive. There’s plenty of room for additional verses.
