Talk about an exclusive first listen. And the dawning of a new era in online music piracy.
This past weekend Australian dance-pop act and die-hard Boston Celtics fans Cut Copy issued a new single at Pitchfork Music Fest. Literally. They released “Let Me Show You” via 120 copies of 12-inch vinyl cut right on-site at the CHIRP Record Fair, and the dude who got #73, known on YouTube as “debaser22,” posted the song this morning with a bit of a description of the record itself. And when we say posted, we mean he uploaded a video of him playing the record on his turntable. So this is definitely a new, rather unique way of a fan ripping a track and posting it online. It kicks in at the 1:25 mark.
“Let Me Show You” is allegedly the first cut (ha!) off the band’s upcoming fall record, the follow-up to 2011’s Zonoscope; the single has got a bit of a trance-y vibe, and kinda reminds us of Primal Scream a little bit. Feeling it.
Some are saying it sounds like a re-working of K-Klass’ 1993 song of the same name. Judge for yourself.
