Cut Copy Album Update

Modular’s computer-referencing indie dance cats Cut Copy have been pretty quiet lately, however they’ve recently posted a blog on their myspace page with an update on the latest band activity.

It looks as though the follow-up to their fantastic sophomore album In Ghost Colours is not too far off according to the post, which stated:

“…we have been camped out in a warehouse on the outskirts of Melbourne, finishing writing and recording for album number 3. More on that very soon.”

Sounds promising.

Even more promising, however, is the project that front man Dan Whitford has been doing on the side:

“Dan spent the majority of 2009 re-creating the Blade Runner soundtrack on his recently acquired CS-80 synthesizer. Note for note, arpeggio for arpeggio. Hopefully his interpretation of Vangelis’s masterpiece will eventually see the light of day.”

Whether this comment is based on fact is yet to be confirmed.

Vangelis (or Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou to his mother) did the crazy classical-meets-futuristic-synthesizer soundtrack for Ridley Scott’s classic flick and people are still creaming their jeans over it. About six million people have made an awesome montage of Blade Runner scenes set to the “Love Theme” which is saxophonic gold. So amazingly Eighties…
