Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Earlier in the week, Darryl Smyers passed along some of The Cut*Off's stories from the road. Then, in this week's paper, Darryl gave the band's new disc, Packaged Up for Beginners, a positive review.

So you could say it's been something of a Cut*Off week around here. Well, this should make it official: The guys in the band gave us the green light to post a track from the new disc onto this blog, for you to download. Here it is:

The Cut*Off -- "Luggage For Light Years"

Yeah, you can definitely hear the Pixies influence on this track. And, for those of you scoring at home, that's a good thing. --Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
