Review: Jerry Paper – “Like A Baby”

Listening to Jerry Paper is like listening to the elevator music of the future (in a good way). Every track on Like A Baby will have you blinking slower and feeling foggy.

Yet if someone were to tell that to me before I heard the music, I would have no idea how that sounds. Assuming this i...
