Before we started hearing music from Cut Copy's new record, it felt like Jagwar Ma were at the forefront of the baggy revival. Sorry lads, but “Take Me Higher” is the Australian band's bucket hat-shaped crown. The track introduces itself with a psychedelic blend of acoustic fluttery and choral healing tones with Stone Roses reversed riffage. Lucy in the Sky with Mani, Remi, John and Ian. From there it's a collage of house chords, breakbeats, and all the other pleas to live in the moment for as long as there's sweat from dancing on our bodies.
Cut Copy's Free Your Mind drops November 6th via Modular. Shane Meadows' Stone Roses doc comes out in North America on November 6th as well.
