    With the abundance of digitized music stockpiling the internet, this record's destiny might be to float on, unnoticed by the masses. That would be a shame, but for the members of Cut City, the physical release of ”Where's The Harm In Dreams Disarmed” marks the end of a journey that commenced more than four years ago.

    As the delight of the lush ”Narcissus Can Wait” 12” (Deleted Art/Some Industries, 2009) was quickly absorbed and fans thirsting for more, the band set out to record their second full-length, the follow-up to their dark and daring debut ”Exit Decades” (Gold Standard Laboratories, 2007). But little did they know that it would take eons to finish and very little did they know that the band would cease operation before it was out. But as with every grand finale there's immense beauty in the light that it casts.

    The title says more than anything; is there any other notion that conjures the image of acceptance of failure than ”Where's The Harm In Dreams Disarmed”? Though a majority of the record was written before Cut City decided to go on an extended hiatus, the album and its lyrics is pregnant with poignant themes of loss and deflation of mind. But as with every Cut City record there's the polarity of words and music; if things look bleak there's always something to counter that notion. ”Where's The Harm In Dreams Disarmed” may lyrically be dressed in a bleak and ominous costume but the musical backdrop is a mesmerizing and dreamy collage of sounds and thrusting beats. The anthemic opening track ”Void” sets the tone and paves the way for the wall-of-sound of ”A Modest Recovery”, which in turn leaves the field wide open for emotions to run wild. Then, of course, there's the ninth and last track, an 11-minute trilogy of love lost and drowned, which gives the word epic a whole new meaning.

    ”Where's The Harm In Dreams Disarmed” hit the digital record shelves in August last year and the immediate response was that of its stunning beauty. We knew that Cut City could write songs but an album like this is just one in a million.

lyrics

You're nothing short of amazing
I might choke but I'm still be gazing
From the rooftops witnessing squares running in circles

For you I'd sanction murder
To ease a tedious burden
The scum and regular people would say it's deceitful

With death I will entertain you
With smoke from barrels spare few
Pile bodies to a pillar of grandeur that mirrors your beauty

And on someone elses behalf
I'd crack a joke so you can laugh
It's a bleak affaire but it's fairly done
The shots I called the laws I shunned

You're the perfection that requires night rites
A carcrash redeemed so I just smile
To be perfectly perfectly honest wouldn't you too

And on someone elses behalf
I'd crack a joke so you can laugh
It's a bleak affaire but it's fairly done
The shots I called the laws I shunned

It just doesn't get any better

So there's a want of
A modest recovery
And all I give you
Is a sudden relief
From famous thieves
And what they stole
