Tedo Stone, Paperhaus, New Wives

Washington, D.C. has been known as a DIY music mecca since the 1980s, and though its national presence has quieted somewhat, our nation’s capital continues to churn out the occasional buzz band. In its heyday, the town’s scene leaned heavily toward the punk end of the spectrum, before trending toward spazzy, stop-start indie rock in the mid-’90s. Psych-addled trio Paperhaus, whose members operate one of D.C.’s most popular house-show venues, wear some familiar sonic badges of both movements: angular guitars, propulsive rhythms, a no-frills recording style. Theirs is no all-out assault; the new single “Cairo” displays the group’s sense of pop depth.
