This will grow on you...Cut Copy fans..
on 20 March 2011
Cut Copy are one of the brightest talents on the aussie scene, this LP was purchased with a real tingling of anticipation....FIRST LISTEN....hmmmm......not as good as "In Ghost Colours".....SECOND LISTEN...those glacial synths...the odd beats...the skittering hints of something new....THIRD LISTEN.....i'm in love!
Whitford and Co have returned with a classic, two years on from the indie-disco classic "In Ghost Colours",we get a blend of the old, the familiar and the new, there is far less FX-laden guitarwork here, this is a tight funky,almost DISCO 70's sorta vibe. There is fun to be had as well as the usual mix of pathos.
Nothing here to alarm anyone lyrically, Cut Copy stay the wiser side of "happy" but they keep creating great sounds...moods...i'm in love with this little australian gem.....the only weak-ish track is track three...where it all goes a bit psychedelic for four minutes.
