Deeper Cuts

Welcome to Deeper Cuts: the COVID Sessions -- a three episode miniseries which finds the Deeper Cuts trio taking deep dives into music with deep meaning for us right now as we shelter in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. Living in modern times can be exciting, and also terrifying. Sometimes, it feels like we’re just children in a big imposing world, sparking our anxieties, and making us feel overwhelmed. While sheltering in place during this strange and scary COVID-19 era, Shannon turned to fellow New Yorker John Mulaney’s Sack Lunch Bunch soundtrack, an accompaniment to his Netflix...

Welcome to Deeper Cuts: the COVID Sessions -- a three episode miniseries which finds the Deeper Cuts trio taking deep dives into music with deep meaning for us right now as we shelter in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. Right now during the COVID-19 lockdown, a lot of us find ourselves waiting. We're waiting for conditions to change, waiting for a resumption of everyday things, waiting for any good news whatsoever. Graeme's go-to album during this pandemic that's he's been waiting with is Bruce Cockburn's 1973 album Night Vision which Cockburn mega-fan Graeme... never really liked all that...

Welcome to Deeper Cuts: the COVID Sessions -- a three episode miniseries which finds the Deeper Cuts trio taking deep dives into music with deep meaning for us right now as we shelter in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. During his time sheltering in place, Rob turned to Fountains of Wayne’s 2007 album Traffic and Weather, a record that’s all about everyday things, of sometimes mundane travels, vignettes of middle-class suburban life, and of the quiet drama and raw humanity that lies at the heart of all that. What he found while listening is that there is beauty, and even poetry, to be...

Deeper Cuts

Home. What does it mean? What associations do people commonly hold about what their home means to them? How can music help to tie us to home, especially when one is far from it and missing it? When Graeme went to a military school at the age of 12, ABBA’s penultimate 1980 album Super Trouper helped him to keep his feet on the ground while he was regularly apart from his family. How did this record help Graeme during this trying period to make that connection? What is it about this record that brought him joy then, and what is it about it that does the same today? How does music help us keep,...

Deeper Cuts

Sometimes, it’s just time to move on. And yet, after struggles, trials and tribulations and painful endings, sometimes that’s not the easiest thing to do. How do you find the right path? How do you redefine your life once an important chapter has closed? This is a situation we all face in one way or another. For Rob, the 2000 album Daisies of the Galaxy by EELS was the soundtrack to a tumultuous chapter in his life. Luckily in that very record, he found some perspective on the subjects of pain and struggle, loneliness, and how to look on the bright side even though the skies were still...

Rebellion. Anger. Even disillusionment. These are only some of what makes up the human experience. This may be even more pertinent during our youth, and when times of great turmoil are reflected in the headlines, and in the lives of the people we know. It could also be just about the drudgery of our existences, and the feeling that we need to get the hell out and find something new! It all makes us want to cry out in protest and demand a better life for ourselves and for everyone in the world along with us. Green Day’s 2004 record American Idiot provided the soundtrack for...

The world can be a place of trouble and darkness. But in that darkness, there is hope to be found if one is open to doing so. That was just the message that Rob needed as grim world events were coming to a head and as the call to fatherhood to a baby daughter beckoned him at the same time, fears, doubts and all. It was former Staples Singer, soul proponent, and civil rights-era voice of hope Mavis Staples’ 2004 album Have A Little Faith that provided a pathway into the next phase of his life as a dad. Among all of the blues, soul, gospel and folk textures to be found on the record, and...

Deeper Cuts

Some music in our lives gets us at a young age. It bonds itself to our DNA for the rest of our lives, connecting us with memories of unfiltered teenaged joy, posters plastered onto bedroom walls, and the reckless abandon of dance moves and hairbrush microphones in front of the mirror. Our first pop album is all about the heart and about the enthusiasm that came so naturally to us when we were kids. Immortal boyband Backstreet Boys and their 1998 self-titled debut was an impactful force along these lines for our Shannon Dohar. But what does the rest of the Deeper cuts trio think about...

Classical music. It’s old. It’s complex. It can be intimidating. But somehow, the best of it goes beyond mere academic appreciation and makes you feel things. This is especially true if, like our Shannon Dohar, you get to participate in it. Shannon performed Beethoven’s Mass in C as a member of a choir and this piece became a signpost for her to what the possibilities are, helping her to form an appreciation for music as a whole. In episode 8 of Deeper Cuts, we talk about classical music and its relationship to the feels. We talk about how sacred music of all kinds intersect along common musical lines. Somehow, we talk about hockey and baseball, too. And we also talk about how music like this can be truly communal. So, take your place in the choir and we’ll begin.
