“Departure in Particular”

“It’s a bittersweet feeling being both excited for Cut City’s upcoming record and knowing it’s probably their last, but seeing how much their previous releases affected me, even their less assured, yet still intriguing debut ‘Exit Decades,’ I’m confident that Cut City’s departure from the world of music will not coincide with their departure from my esteem.”
