If you took jazz dance classes in the early '90s, you will love Cut Copy. Or maybe you're a boy and your mom wouldn't let you take jazz class, but you had a secret crush on Marky Mark; you will love Cut Copy. Flashes of early-'90s club beats constantly flex their way into the band's upbeat shakers. But if, for some really uncool reason, this doesn't appeal to you, there is more to Cut Copy to love, like a particularly fantastic Interpol sample in Bright Like Neon Love's "Zap Zap" and some sedated Daft Punkish techno stylings. Cut Copy's newly released In Ghost Colours is even more high-powered than their debut, now that the band is in bed with the dance-hit-making production team of DFA. The new album has more of a "rock your face off" quality than in Cut Copy's past, but is still coupled with melodramatic lyrics perfect for a noble, strobe-lit booty chase. With the Presets. 18+.
