The Uppity Bastard

Here is the Uppity Bastard’s music recommendation of the week: Cut CopyIn Ghost Colours50e3.jpgCut Copy is a band from Melbourne, Australia. Their sound, often labeled as indie dance, draws considerable influence from 80s new wave and post punk genres.

The band began in 2001 as the project of songwriter Dan Whitford, who is also a graphic designer and DJ. In 2003 Whitford recruited additional members, and in 2005 toured internationally for the first time, visiting London, New York, and Los Angeles.  They have toured with international acts Franz Ferdinand, Junior Senor, Bloc Party, and Mylo amongst others; in December of 2007, the band toured Australia with Daft Punk on the Nevereverland tour, the Sydney leg of which attracted a crowd of almost 50,000.  Cut Copy is managed by Supervision, and is signed to the record label Modular Recordings, home of Wolfmother, The Presets, and New Young Pony Club.  In 2004 Cut Copy released their debut LP, Bright Like Neon Love.


This new album was co-produced by Tim Goldsworthy, of the DFA record label and production team out of New York.  The album just came out this week (I had been waiting months for it), and it is pretty spectacular.  Dancey, electronic pop at its finest.    


Also, peep the So Cosmic mixtape they released about two months ago, featuring remixes of new tracks from the album, alongside tracks by artists like Aphex Twin, Panda Bear, Giorgio Moroder, and many more.
