I just bought tickets for Cut Copy’s show at the Mezzanine in San Francisco on October 5 and realized that I haven’t featured this in my Album of the Week series yet. For shame! This album has been in heavy rotation in our household since it’s release in April this year and has to be one of the most fun albums of 2008.
While it doesn’t fall into my usual genre, I can’t seem to get enough of their 80’s New Order, Pet Shop Boys sound. And neither can Judah. The track Lights & Music has secured top spot on his own personal Rhapsody playlist and inspired robot dance moves that made waves among hipster blogs like Hipster Runoff earlier this summer. Showing everyone it’s hip to dance with your pants off.
