Music: Cut Copy (...Paste some Disco)

Cut Copy's "In Ghost Colours" album keeps hemorrhaging remixes like it's sweeps week on ER. This time around, their song "Far Away" gets a Disco re-rub by Hercules & Love Affair (DFA) and up and coming Damn Arms (Bang Gang). And what is it with the term "Nu-Disco"? It's not like Disco ever went away...Well, I'm gonna try not to use it because it just sounds silly. Agree? Remember when you bought a disco 12" and it actually said "Disco Sound" on the sleeve? That's exactly how i want things labeled...even in my kitchen. Oh yeah, No offense but it seems to me like Andy Buttler didn't get paid enough for the remix ('s kinda whatever). Damn Arms on the other "hand" probably would have done it for free (oh yeah, it's really that good). So keep an eye on them...they sound promising. Far Away 12" Single out Nov 24th on Modular.
