Best of SXSW: Cut Copy

Best of SXSW: Cut Copy

Cut Copy live at SXSW

Here's a live shot of Cut Copy at The Mohawk in Austin, Texas today for the Rhapsody day party. They get the dance party started early with their 2:30 P.M. set. They're a lot of buzz about them on the streets (literally) and their set was so good that we've selected them for our Best of SXSW feature, which will feature all of the great bands we see this week. For now check out our free playlists and SXSW 2008 Pre-Party. Here's the Download Music review of Cut Copy:

"Hipster bands have a hilariously hard time keeping LCD Soundsystem and Prince influences to a minimum these days. Somehow, though, Cut Copy is an anomaly where that's concerned. Despite having the typical indie-rock hair, electro-punk styling, and disco-fever slant to make things interesting, Cut Copy is churning out its own version of scummy disco framed by fluffy pop and dance-floor-friendly guitars."
