I have yet to listen to Cut Copy’s latest album Zonoscope, which i’m sure without a doubt will be seven shades of amaze. In the meantime, a little number they released as a pre-cursive teaser on their Far Away EP has had frequent airings on Salmon Stereo. It’s a simple track that adds melancholy layers atop some spartan vocals before bursting into the electro-pop goodiness that we are used to from this aussie outfit. Slightly reminiscent of The Beloved’s Sweet Harmony, which is no bad thing. As for the album, I’ll let you know.
Here we go! Ichisan (Igor Skafar) is a little known mardi-lecki-squggle-music maker from far off Slovenia. Along with another Slovenian called Nakova he makes spangly electronic noises and has helped coined the term “Yugo Disco”
Ichisan’s track here called Radar Pulse Is Sent is a very fine slice nu-disco with fizzling synths that arpeggiate over a steady pulse. I imagine this what discovering that you had superpowers and taking your first flight through interstellar space would sound like.
