This morning, let’s enjoy the comeback of sunnier days while listening to Cut Off Your Hands’ kaleidoscopic selection. Cut Off Your Hands’ dreamy yet energetic tracks combine cheerful indie rock with post punk influences, always feeling very sincere.

Open your windows, put on your sunglasses, make yourself a nice coffee, and get ready for a fulfilling day with their selection! All Sundays do not have to be lazy.

Cut Off Your Hands’ selection

  • LA Priest - Lorry Park

    Cut Off Your Hands: This magical nature of the sounds and the progression through the song inspires action… this song commands something to happen. I usually like to do have an active Sunday and get stuff done like housework, errands, shopping, etc - so this track is the perfect call to action. I’m a fan of Sam’s collaborations, the latest with Connan Mockasin called Soft Hair.

  • John Coltrane - Blue Train

    Cut Off Your Hands: How good is jazz? That’s rhetorical, everyone knows. Beautiful interplay between each instrument and excellent arrangement, with plenty of space throughout. Especially good on a Sunday as it’s the day when I reflect on the week that’s been and begin to ponder the one to come. Oh so saxy!

  • Flamingosis - Bright Moments (ft. The Kount)

    Cut Off Your Hands: I’ve been following Flamingosis for a few years now and has continued to produce tasty tunes, this one being the title track off an album release in July of this year. I often listen to old soul/funk (Al Green, Rick Holmes etc) and Flamingosis adds a fresh flavour with mixes between Hip Hop & Funk, sampling some of my favourite artists. If you dig this tune, next take a listen to ‘what went wrong?’.

Mailtape’s selection

  • Cut Off Your Hands - Higher Lows and Lower Highs

    Inès: After a few years without any releases, Cut Off Your Hands decided to gift us with two new songs, and I couldn’t be happier about it since it is a band I have been listening to for years. « Higher Lows and Lower Highs » is one of them, referring to mental health issues and their impact on life yet having this funky, upbeat sound that is so difficult to resist.

  • BABE - Scooping Pints

    Inès: Let’s continue in this groovy vibe with BABE’s song, making us travel to a tropical island, under a blazing sun, chilling and/or dancing, simply enjoying life.

  • Aquaserge - Tour du Monde

    Inès: Aquaserge is a French band mixing so many influences it’s hard to explain the kind of music they’re playing. « Tour du monde », taken from their latest release « Laisse ça être », feels like listening to a conversation between all its instruments. Who’s going to have the final say in this?

  • Caandides - Rio

    Inès: « Rio » is my go-to song every time a ray of sunshine appears for more than two seconds. I love its structure, alternating turbulent moments with calmer ones, letting you breathe in between. It just overall feels carefree and optimistic, perfect for busy sunny days!

That’s all folks! Thanks to Cut Off Your Hands for their participation, and Anais for the illustration. Have a delightful Sunday!

Inès.
