“Crystal Cuts” is a record born of the AM, of the radio wave, of the earliest of mornings spent with a mono ear-piece strung from a transistor or amateur crystal hearing about someone else’s problems, searching for meaning to your own.

Geoff Corbett (SixFtHick) and Dylan McCormack (Gentle Ben & his Sensitive Side, The Polaroids) glue together words and music as a post-work debrief to take the edge off dealing with life’s little realities of someone else’s problems in a Drug & Alcohol unit in a faraway hospital. At the core Corbett and McCormack along with a revolving door of Brisbane’s finest managed to spit out something not heard and not tried on the stage-boards for quite some time, maybe forever ( in northern climes at least). It was tagged down-beat, depresso-core. The Sands were the quietest heaviest band around and still are. Isabella Mellor (Jeremy Neale, Catalano) has well and truly arrived and has stamped her trademark vocal prowess indelibly across “Crystal Cuts”. The saccharine to the nicotine, Isabella brings it by the satchet as she glides along the fence lines all femme feline nonplussed.

Enter “Crystal Cuts”, Shifting Sands second long player for the Spooky and Beast labels. Now don’t go getting us wrong. It’s not all deep-sea lows. Under the crush there are gardens and caverns providing light and respite.
