Thee More Shallows - More Deep Cuts (2004)


Sweet, sad, but sharp, ornate-in-a-homemade-sort-of-way, lo-fi-ish indie rock. If you click the link above, you'll see that I knew practically nothing about the band Shackleton at the time, and my post doubled as an attempt to gather some intel. Well, thanks to one commenter, I found out that it was a project of an SF musician named Dee Kessler, and that he had another band called Thee More Shallows. Someone else jumped in to recommend their first record, which I do love, but having had a long time to percolate on it, I feel that More Deep Cuts has the edge ever so slightly. That being said, literally everything I've heard from Dee Kessler has really exemplified this blog's credo of "this record should be way more popular."
