Nick Lattanzi, an up-and-coming Boston based musician whom this blog has previously reported on, recently joined with a number of other local musicians--Isaac Hasselkorn, Erik Kramer, Cary Liptak, and Devon Fisher-- to form the band Sun Cut Flat.
Their first album, Running of the Bulls, was released a few months back and absolutely deserves to be heard. Sticking true to their independent roots, Lattanzi and the rest of the members of Sun Cut Flat have put the album up for free online, check it out here. Those readers familiar with Lattanzi's previous work will, likely within the first 15 seconds of the albums opening track No Good Man, note a departure from his previous solo albums Paxamericana. and Shiny Car!. With Running of the Bulls, Lattanzi has not so much put his singer-songwriter complex in the back seat as he has allowed his songs to be added to by his backing band.
For those in the Boston area, check out Sun Cut Flat tonight, Wednesday January 20th at TT the Bears in Cambridge. As if seeing the band wasn't enough, all proceeds from the show will go towards the Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund. More info on that show (directions, etc) can be found here.
