"More Deep Cuts is as enchanting and seductive as the quietly beckoning madness of everyday life." - CMJ More Deep Cuts, the second album by San Francisco band Thee More Shallows and their first for Turn Records, arrives some time after their debut A History of Sport Fishing received glowing reviews likening the group to a diverse host of extraordinary bands including Yo La Tengo, Grandaddy and GS!YBE, while also lauding them for being far more than the sum of their influences. After touring the U.S. and UK, songwriter Dee Kesler retreated to the studio to work on the follow-up to their success. What was supposed to be mere weeks of recording turned into months of fine-tuning, then years of obsession. After almost three years of tireless work and Kesler's seclusion from the world, More Deep Cuts emerged, showcasing a massive evolution in Thee More Shallows' sound and producing an album that is both beautiful, epic, haunting and devastating.
