ft. Paul Dempsey, Car Seat Headrest, Cate Le Bon, Kevin Morby, MOSSY


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.

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.

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 Boncate-le-bon1

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 Morbykevin morby

Cut Destroyer

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 Ginsberg

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!
