about

Tell the Ghosts it’s Suppertime features an all-star cast of musicians from all over the Philadelphia music community and showcases Paper Masques’ unique folk-tinged psychedelia. The thirteen musicians who populate the album’s intricately arranged tracks bring layers of depth and atmosphere to Quaranta’s songs of loss and depravity; leaving the listener to blindly wander through a lush carnival of urban decay.
