Yesterday I was holed up in my bedroom with a blanket over the window trying to get some sleep after not feeling well the night before.Â So I didn’t post.Â That means today I will post two blogs since I promised new stuff all week.Â Hopefully the “blog police” fine folks over at the Grand Forks Herald won’t have a fit because I posted twice in one day.
Cut Copy first rocked my world with 2004′s Bright Like Neon Love LP.Â It was like a breath of fresh synth-pop air.Â Â I have been waiting for them to put out something new.
And they did that by releasing their new album Zonoscope this month.Â It’s not everything I had hoped their follow up to Bright Like Neon Love would be, but it’s ok.Â The first single, “Take Me Over” bears a striking resemblance to the bass line in Fleetwood Mac’s “Everywhere” though other bloggers compared it to 80s Men At Work.Â You be the judge.
Cut Copy, “Take Me Over”:
Fleetwood Mac, “Everywhere”:
Men At Work, “Land Down Under”:
