Artist: Cutout Lover
Songs: [two unknown songs] + [unknown song]
Recorded at The Baby G, March 15, 2017.
Chris Pitsiokos and his crew of NYC avant-jazz heads offered up some "technical" skronk-shred that sounded like a U.S. Maple tape with the fast forward button held down. The chopsy instrumental sections were offset with Paige Johnson-Brown's intense sing-speak declamations. The band had the somewhat rough-around-the-edges look of a crew that had been on tour for a bit — or perhaps they looked a little pale from the sheer energy and focus required for their brand of no-wave precision metallo-funk — I felt pleasantly exhausted just from watching their set.
