I’ve recently become fond of Cut Copy, the Australian electronica group currently touring with Washed Out, another current musical crush of mine. So when I got an email earlier today from a rep for the band announcing that they’d remixed a song by Death Cab For Cutie, a longtime musical crush of mine, well, I almost sharted from excitement. Almost.
And then I finally got around to giving the remix of “Doors Unlocked And Open” a good listen and I think I almost sharted again. (Sorry guys, it’s just been too long since I’ve used the term “sharted.”) I fired back the following succinct response to the aforementioned Cut Copy rep: “This is f*cking fantastic!” Seriously y’all, it is.
From the DCFC blog:
Death Cab for Cutie are excited to announce a collection of remixes of songs from ‘Codes And Keys.’ Starting today, we’ll be revealing one new remix a week for 7 weeks – we’re kicking it all off with a remix of “Doors Unlocked and Open” by Cut Copy! On the 7th week, everything will culminate with the release of a remix EP entitled the ‘Keys And Codes Remix EP’ and it’s out everywhere on November 22.
As the band’s blog post notes, a new remix will be streamed each Monday leading up to the EP’s release — each remix will then be available for purchase via iTunes the following day — as this one is right here. Check it out below, but be warned: you may find yourself $1.29 poorer soon after listening to it.
