  • Date Recorded: July 21, 2013
  • Artist / Band: Leftover Cuties
  • Hosting Show: Mystery Train
  • Sound: Dan Kinney

It would take a very broad definition of pop music to take in Leftover Cuties. It would have to include the roots of popular music going back to the 20s, it would have to allow some jazz in the back door and it would need to include a ukulele-playing siren that once was in the Israeli army.

Shirli McAllen moved to Los Angeles from Israel and met multiinstrumentalist Austin Nicholsen who introduced her to the diminutive instrument of her choice. The two played as a duo until filling out the sound with the addition of Stuart Johnson on drums, Ryan Feves on bass and Mike Bolger doing a very nice job on keys, trumpet and accordion.

The band had early success when the first song they wrote, mythically on a napkin, was recorded and featured as the theme of the Showtime series The Big C. They also were featured on a Samsung commercial that played incessantly during the 2012 Olympics.

The band played a selection from three of their recordings in this Live at KDHX session and the sounds vary from a slow shuffle that sounds like a float on a summer lake to hepcat boogie to the blues.
