Cutters Contest Yo!

Can you believe Cut Copy managed to drop another rekkid as premium as Bright Like Neon Love, and that soon you'll be testing out your practiced bedroom tektonic spasms at an actual stateside performance?

No one is more pleased with this turn of events than Butter Team staffers - and to celebrate we're giving away a special/happy Modular prize pack including an autographed copy of In Ghost Colours, fierce limited edition cutters 3-D glasses and more!

I absolutely adore In Ghost Colours because it demonstrates Cut Copy's ability to progress and expand their sound while still retaining their beloved nostalgic vibe. "Strangers In The Wind" is my favorite track because of the awesome synth sequence. I've been playing this record on repeat!

I feel that In Ghost Colours mixes electronic and rock in a way that hasn't been seen since New Order. Although the New Order comparison has been thrown around awhile, it should be only taken as a large compliment.

i agree, this is the record that New Order would make now if they were still in their twenties. Among other things, IGC makes for the best nighttime driving record ever.

I'm not surprised that it turned out so well, the only problem is that I'm always looking forward to the next track. pjrbessette_at_gmail.com

Thank god they came out with this record. I have been waiting years, and I can easily say that it had been worth it. They have certainly stepped up their game and taken their sound in somewhat of a new direction. I am excited for all the mixes that will come off of this record.

I'm not sure how to do encrypted email in this comment, but I have a mustache...
