Following the release of his excellent new album Free Time on Stones Throw, Jerry Paper comes to Berlin this October for a special live concert at the Kantine Berghain.
Every morning Lucas Nathan wakes up, slips into a flowy dress, and heads to the studio for a day of absolute jamming as their freaky weirdo musical persona: Jerry Paper. The one rule? NO SELF DOUBT! What came of that creative process is the synth-pop, weird-rock, bizarro-muzak masterpiece: Free Time, an expression of freedom on their journey to self-discovery as a nonbinary artist, groover, and, most importantly, shaker of ass. When Jerry Paper asks you to hit *PLAY* on Free Time, they mean it in the most literal sense of the word…they want you to PLAY around and have some friggin’ fun for once!
With Free Time, Jerry Paper invites us to climb aboard their funhouse version of the Starship Enterprise, one whose Prime Directive is self-acceptance— learning to rid ourselves of judgment from without and within, to forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and to boldly go into the Deep Space of our own inner worlds, where our inner wellspring of creativity lies. By the end of the album, Nathan lands their spacecraft and disembarks, and *comes out* (literally and figuratively) from the vessel embracing themselves for who they really are: non-binary, a beautiful flower, nuanced, strange, bizarre, and flawed…with a ketchup stain on their blue dress.
