Cut Copy Premiere “In These Arms Of Love”

Cut Copy plan on releasing a 10″ single for this year’s international Record Store Day. One of the songs that will be featured on that release is a brand new one titled “In These Arms Of Love.” Earlier today the band released that song online, and you can listen to it below the break.

“In These Arms Of Love” may be ambient, but it’s full of passion. It has a bit of an ’80s pop/rock influence to it that makes it all the more enjoyable. If this 10″ happens to be available in your local store, I highly recommend picking …

WEEKLY WAX: Vinyl Releases For The Week Of 2/16-2/22

I don’t know what you’ve been listening to this week, but on the rare occasions when I wasn’t playing The Hotelier‘s excellent new album, I was alternating between the new Menzingers single and “I Wanna Get Better,” the first song from Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff’s new project, Bleachers. Conveniently (or not, if you ask my wallet), all three of those artists launched pre-orders for new material this week, and they weren’t alone.
