Low Cut Connie

Get Out The Lotion

(Low Cut Connie; US: 1 Jan 2011; UK: Import)

Melodic and driving, Low Cut Connie’s Get Out The Lotion recalls the easy party vibe of those loveable Faces with more than a dash of contemporary rock ‘n’ roll thrown in for good measure. “The Cat & The Cream” and “Big Thighs, NJ” speak to the former, while “Rio” tackles the latter and “Show Your Face” manages to straddle both like a tip-hungry stripper. “Lover’s Call” and “Darlin’” are evidence of a group that’s got a little more up top than it lets on. A rare band that’s equal to its hype, let’s hope we get to watch Low Cut Connie in action for a long, long time to come.
