Prime Cuts as always is less about new”singles” and more about songs/tracks that simply we have an urge to share. Paul Dempsey, who was once part of Something For Kate, and is about to release a new album, delivers “The True Sea” while Car Seat Headrest, may well be a name you will hear more of this year, and we think it is completely worthy a listen. The perfectly eccentric Cate Le Bon, has just released her new album “Crab Day” and we cut the title track, with an 11 minute music clip that it is as odd as it is delightful. Kevin Morby’s prime cut is equally beautiful for completely different reasons, and finally it is the rising Australian star MOSSY, that blew us away with this great new song.
Artist Paul Dempsey
Cut The True Sea
Cut From Melbourne, Australia
Kind of Reminds Us Of Old school Powderfinger, Bon Iver
Something For Kate is where Paul Dempsey began his musical success story back in 1994, but a solid 22 years later and Dempsey’s rawness and talent is still on show with The True Sea, a single from his upcoming album “Strange Loop”. With that classic Australian singer songwriter attitude, this comfortable track is practised and pristine with sweet guitar and lyrics.
Artist Car Seat Headrest
Cut Fill in the Blank
Cut From Virginia, USA
Kind of Reminds Us Of Courtney Barnett, Foo Fighters
Opening with an introduction from a random female voice, Will Toledo (brains behind Car Seat Headrest) throws all kinds of goodness at you. Although Virginia is where CSH lives, they’re going to thrive all over the world with new album Teens of Denial. Garage rock, howling guitars and kick drums, this youthful garage rock in fine form.
Artist Cate Le Bon
Cut Crab Day
Cut From Penboyr, Wales/Los Angeles, USA
Kind of Reminds Us Of Stereolab, St. Vincent, Julia Holter
Cate Le Bon is by no means a flash in the pan or some overnight success, amongst her fellow Welsh muso’s, like Super Furry Animals, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci and Neon Neon, Le Bon has collaborated and supported to earn her worth. This is the title track “Crab Day”, the accompanying video is odd, and we would expect nothing less. The song, well Le Bon can do know wrong in being the worthy influencer that she is, as an artist and songwriter.
Artist Kevin Morby
Cut From Texas, USA
Kind of Reminds Us Of Elliott Smith, Woods, Leonard Cohen
Since the release of his latest album Singing Saw, Kevin Morby (once bass player for Woods who we reviewed at New Borns) has yet again seduced the ears of many punters on this impeccable return album. Destroyer is sensual, delicate and sweeps you up in its beauty. There is not much more to be said, give it a listen and you will know exactly what we mean.
Cut From Sydney, Australia
Kind of Reminds Us Of Tame Impala, The Smiths
An early single released before his upcoming debut EP, MOSSY has hit the ground running with Ginsberg. Soothing and sultry, a little danger in the mix of cool drawling singing. A proud Sydney talent, this track is laid back, an indie dreamscape with shoegaze influence and an almost psychedelic-electro feel. Woozy and fun, what a way to make an entrance!
