Where is Cut Copy?

Occasionally along comes an artist whose work is so intertwined with certain facets of your life, particularly those that have become your foundational bricks, that a mere smattering of their samples can bring about both the savory reminiscence and the sting of repetition. It's been some time since I saw Cut Copy and much longer since In Ghost Colours came out. Naturally to assuage my selfishness, I hope that they are working hard on:

- Coming back to Chicago
- Making a new album
- Making sweet remixes
- All of the above

Fortunately for me, I've found a couple of gems that they have been putting their pen to. The latest of which (last few months) are:

Munk - Back Down (Cut Copy Jackmaster Remix)
The Juan Maclean - Happy House (Cut Copy Space is the Place Remix)
Mercy Arms - Kept Low (Cut Copy Remix)

Looking at their myspace, they are doing the DJ circuit in Australia and NZ now until the end of the year. Discogs' only 2009 entry is their remix of Move by CSS. Hypemachine gives only old mixes and other people's mixes of Cut Copy. I guess I'll have to keep waiting for something to happen. Here are some more from months / years past.

Kaiser Chiefs - Never Miss A Beat (Cut Copy Mix).... can I repost this enough times?
CSS - Move (Cut Copy Remix)

Also, while pursuing these folk I found I Thought Of Numbers from 2001 -- quite a departure from their current polished melodically moving sound. This stuff comes out of the early 2000's electroclash introduction which Bright Like Neon Lights also takes some cues from.

Cut Copy - Rendezvous
Cut Copy - Sitting Down Standing Up

Dude, thanks for these tracks. Everyday, I've been kicking myself for not going to see Cut Copy at the Wiltern when they came this past year. UGGGGGHH I hope they tour again and when they do, you should come to LA for the show! Miss you Con!
