The Cuts You Said Were Good
The Cuts You Said Were Good is the second self-released album from San Diego singer/songwriter Greg Newman. Also acting as co-producer, Newman presents a singular brand of rock born of carefully crafted songwriting with a touch of subversion. Musically and vocally, the album refrains from abrasive sounds, exhibiting pleasing melodies that invite a broad range of listeners. â€œSuch An Ugly Girlâ€ even features a spirited trumpet that works so well it should have appeared more. Newman slyly uses a pleasant voice to explore the seedier side of life in lyrics like â€œLose virginity with my fingertips/walk a nervous line/do a couple tricks.â€ He sings of drug abuse, adultery, domestic violence and extreme poverty from a nonjudgmental, yet sardonic, point of view.
