Monday – Electro Pop remix. 11/28/11. Death Cab for Cutie – Doors Unlocked And Open (Cut Copy remix)

Monday’s child was on a Magical Mystery Tour.

I’m normally writing about remixes to Cut Copy songs, and whilst it isn’t new for them to be taking on other artist’s tracks, it has been a few years and it got the pulse racing (which in turn pulled it’s hammy, I havent been regularly stretching my pulse) to hear what they could offer Washington’s Death Cab For Cutie.

Benjamin Gibbard had this to say about Cutie’s 2011 album Codes & Keys – “It’s not a guitar-based record. We’ve been into vintage keyboards and playing with that palette. We’re not adding guitars because people will be expecting them. I’m so proud of this album that at this point I don’t care if people don’t like it”.

I would have to say that the Aussie Electro Pop band has done Gibbard a huge favour by showing him what a non guitar based record should sound like. Cut Copy has taken one of its melancholic ballads Doors Unlocked And Open, a track that contains strong vocal hints of the Petshop Boys & Duran Duran and have done all they blatantly can to remove the hint and turn it into a snow leopard print legging inspired New Wave classic.

Say what you want about needing more cowbell, it’s bongos that are wanting, and it’s bongos that are delivered right from the outset compounded with low cheesy synths that eventually evolve into lively raindrops happy enough to keep the bipolars from staying too long at one end of the mental spectrum. Most of the readers might associate this with the music they were conceived to, I know it makes me wish my girlfriend was around.
