DEEP CUTS – SATURDAY, 9/20 @ 3PM
Deep Cuts is a band with a story to tell on their debut EP, and the story is one of their homeland: The Greater Houston-Galveston Coastal Corridor. Excepting a certain zillionaire R&B diva, this is not an area known for its musical offerings. With the zesty Latin sounds of Love Grows, Deep Cuts changes that. Their songs are bursts of pop energy fueled by Latin syncopations and earworm choruses, each with its own small slice of the greater story. Never had a minor panic attack dodging the hordes of daytrippers bustling along 61st and Seawall? Listen to the frenzied hits that open “Causeway” and you’ll know. Never sat in midday beach traffic heading south on I-45, the AC out and Tres Hombres stuck in the CD player? Listen to the woozy guitar that permeates “Serpents” and you’ll know. Never made the drunken trip from the island back into the city, your wallet empty and your love life lacking? Listen to Love Grows and you’ll know.
