The title track for the album was originally meant for the second Strawberry Switchblade album. Since that never happened, McDowall recorded it for her solo album. It's a blast of 80s electro pop joy, sounding much earlier than the 1988-1989 timeline, which could be why it was never previously released. Today, we could care less about something sounding current to listeners in 1989, so we can just enjoy it as is. It's perfect for anyone who remembers Dave Kendall hosting 120 Minutes.
Cut With the Cake Knife is due out September 18 on Night School and Sacred Bones. You can listen below. You can pre-order the album now through Sacred Bones' website.
