My Spilt Milk has a pair of tickets to give away to see the Australian electronic pop band Friday night.
At its best, Cut Copy's music tethers rhythmic focus to constant escalation, its layers somehow always capable of becoming bigger, bolder, brighter.
This was David Greenwald's assessment of the Australian electronic pop band when it played Portland last fall. The band is on tour in support of its most recent album, Free Your Mind, which explores the debt the band owes to acid house and '90s dance music. Exclaim.ca reviewed it, writing:
Free Your Mind feels like their most nuanced release to date. As the title and artwork suggest, there's an underlying psychedelic theme, heard both in the trippy vocal samples scattered throughout and in the band's admitted fixation with the two Summers of Love. But that doesn't distract from the fact that this album gets as close to a tab of ecstasy as possible. The title track and "We Are Explorers" are pure club-bangers that sound like time capsules dug up from the Haçienda's remains.
Cut Copy will play the Joy Theater Friday night with Classixx opening, and we have a pair of tickets to give away to the show. Register here for a chance to win. The contest ends Thursday night at 6 p.m.
