rough trade exclusive with a bonus cd featuring a brand new mixtape from dan from cut copy. his mixtapes are brilliant and he has done mixes for fabric and diesel previously. cut copy return armed with their third and most ambitious work yet, 'zonoscope'. 'zonoscope' is cut copy boiled down to their purest form, a suite of futuristic visions built upon primal rhythm tracks. it is their most immediate work to date but also their most sonically exquisite. album track 'take me over' perfectly encapsulates this, its chiming highlife guitars bouncing around tropical percussion reminiscent of an island holiday in a pop song. 'zonoscope' was dreamt in the comedown of in ghost colours, the album which cemented cut copy as a global sensation. their perpetual touring cycle saw the band headline a stage at lollapalooza, become the first australian act to play colombia since inxs, have fire marshals shut down an la performance mid-set as crowds began to buckle the seams of the henry fonda theatre, and be raced to the pitchfork festival via police escort following a cancelled flight. recorded over a six month period in a warehouse space the band rented in melbourne, and mixed in atlanta by ben h allen (animal collective, gnarls barkley, deerhunter), 'zonoscope' paints a mesmerizing picture, conjured by a band at the height of their powers.
