2012’s underground champs Low Cut Connie offer Hurricane Sandy victims music, money, debauchery, and lust

By on December 3, 2012

Low Cut Connie’s Call Me Sylvia has been kicking up dozens of rave reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone, NPR, NY Times, etc. with its brand of sweat-drenched, pelvis-swinging rock n roll.
The band has been chosen to entertain and titillate at the Rolling Stone Xmas Party, and recently recorded a live session for Jack White at his Third Man Records.   
Here are some recent quotes about this very special and sensual band:
“The band’s excellent second record comes off like a drunk’s glove compartment of influences.”
– Rolling Stone
“[A] pathologically fun second record…their live show is a phenomenon.”
– The New York Times     
 “Low Cut Connie is one of an increasingly rare breed: a party band, a  bar band, a band with a sense of rock ‘n’ roll history that isn’t  weighed down by nostalgia”
– NPR / Fresh Air
“Like the best rock & roll of any era, this lives passionately and  messily for the moment, and as Call Me Sylvia spills forth, it’s hard  not to get swept into its giddy, filthy joy.”
– All Music Guide
“”If an alien landed and asked what rock ‘n’ roll is, you could start here.”
– Pop Matters     
“[Their]  most twisted fable of the down-and-dirty life to date…they’ve added  muscle to their sound.”…A-
– Robert Christgau, aka the Dean of American Rock Critics
“The most important American band to come along in years.”
– Dave Marsh, legendary music critic, Sirius XM DJ and Springsteen biographer

As you’re making your end-of-year lists, consider these hearty sleazy tunes delivered with love.
