With The Shins stripped down to James Mercer, Dave Hernandez has been free to pursue other projects. And pursue he did; the new band is called Little Cuts and it’s a bit louder than his previous band. A little garage rock, a little punk, and definitely up a notch in terms of volume. It’s a bit of a return for Hernandez to the noisier side of music; that which can also be found in former band Scared of Chaka.
Plastic Disaster is Little Cuts’ new 7″ EP single. Within the confines of this little paper sleeve, you’ll get plenty of great punk hooks and excellent compositions of Hernandez on guitar and vocals, Andrew Church (Broadcast Oblivion) on bass and Curtis James (Old Haunts and Excuse 17) on drums.
Featuring three songs including the A-Side title track and two stellar B-Sides, this little single dropped via Dirtnap Records back on December 20.
