Cut Copy: Free Your Mind

John Talabot's new single, Elliott Smith remembered and Jeff Carvalho's Europop #PrivateJam in this week's music recap

The Australian masterminds of indietronica Cut Copy are following up their 2011 hit Zonoscope with Free Your Mind, out 5 November—and they were kind enough to make the entire album streamable a week before its release. The 14-track effort was recorded in their hometown of Melbourne and produced by band-member Dan Whitford. Both the album name and title track of “Free Your Mind” were influenced by the Summer of Love for a house-revival style mix of beats—some of which sooth inner-hippie hankerings and others that hold back nothing. As the album’s release notes, freedom—much like the mood of the entire album—is “universally positive and timeless.”
