Cut Copy Releases ‘January Tape’

jt

Fans have been anticipating new music from Cut Copy since 2013’s critically acclaimed Free Your Mind. While they enter the final stages of finishing the follow-up, the band has surprise-dropped January Tape, a 44-minute ambient, instrumental piece of sonic art available as a 400-cassette limited edition run. A sample of the January Tape cassette can be heard at the Cut Copy website. Cut Copy grew from a bedroom project to an international festival staple and today’s collection reinforces that they are a rare combination of technical virtuosity and exceptional, eclectic artistry.

‎Dan Whitford shares, “Having worked for much of the previous 12 months on a new Cut Copy album, we decided this January it was time to give ourselves a well earned break. But instead of retreating to the wilderness or decompressing on a beach somewhere, we spent ten days in the studio making a collection of ambient instrumental works. We wanted to share outtakes from these sessions in all their unedited glory with you, and put them out as an extremely limited edition cassette, available mainly through our webstores (though you may see a copy or two floating around in the wild).”

Stream: Cut Copy – Free Your Mind

CC_lo_res_press_shot_3

“the spirit of the UK’s second summer of love, circa 1988, evoked the old-fashioned way: a DJ spinning records in Melbourne’s burgeoning underground dance music scene.”
– NPR

“ …the psychedelia of the late ’60s, the raw electronics of early British acid house, and the swirling, sampler-and-guitar creations of the shoegazer stylists My Bloody Valentine.” 
– The New York Times

“ …as soulful and wholesome as they are futuristic and danceable.”
– SPIN

Cut Copy have grown from a bedroom project to an international festival staple that never fails to leave thousands enraptured. Each release and tour has invited fans internationally one step closer into their world full of ecstatic peaks broken up by quiet moments of melancholy and beauty. Their vision is clearer than ever before on their fourth studio album, Free Your Mind, released November 5th via Loma Vista/Modular.

The album is now streaming in full at NPR “First Listen” (and available for pre-order via iTunes.)

Free Your Mind was strongly influenced by the two “Summers of Love,” which were birthed from burdening times – Vietnam and 10 years of Thatcher’s reign. Through unprecedented explosions of youth culture, communal elation and celebration, these eras provided a spirit that the band embraced – the need to tear down the walls of perception while creating a fantasy of what the next youth revolution might sound like. The result is a sound of a band that has been sending masses into abandon for years.

Hailed for their energized live show, the band has kicked off an international tour, making stops in LA, Chicago, Austin, Tulsa and more. Fans that aren’t able to catch the band live, can catch them performing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on November 19th.
