CUT YOUR TEETH ARE SEXY “STALLION”S
I’m in love with Cut Your Teeth‘s blend of straight-up hardcore and ’80s glam blues riffing/shred. Axl pointed out to me that at times throughout the course of their new album CYTII (out later this month) the two styles seem abruptly stitched together, and it’s hard to argue with that. But there’s something that I nevertheless find endearing about the combo of seemingly disparate genres; it’s obvious these dudes love them both and are making music that’s an honest expression of where their musical brains are. Just listen to those super-tasty riffs that open the song and the even tastier guitar solo that starts around 1:30… unfuckwithable!
I love this video for their new track “Stallion,” too. It shows the band doing what they do best, which is to FUCKING ROCK, and it’s unpretentious and genuine in its approach. No bullshit CGI, no storyline that doesn’t make sense, no crazy lighting effects… just pure rock and great closeups of the dudes playing in a room so cramped that it looks like it could actually be (and probably is) their own rehearsal space.
