You Cut Her Hair [I](db Records)[/I]

Sounding more bereft, more profoundly adrift than most people would allow

themselves to on vinyl, [a]Tom McRae[/a] narrates a peculiar tale of betrayal and

longing, accompanied by buzzing lo-fi guitar, cello, and a piano whose every note

sounds like your world caving in. Subtly creepy, this is brittle, stripped-bare,

an ugly symphony of awkward silences and disquiet. The kind of song where, when

the singer sings that he wants you to “live, live

long”, it sounds like the most evil curse you ever heard.
