A US-only single from their final album Temperamental, which brought us some exceptional remixes in 2000, here’s Lullaby of Clubland:
The hidden track from her debut Hands, here’s Hands:
One from the early days of this blog, Cut Copy turned up on random play this week, with the brilliant Hearts on Fire:

Here’s a very happy video for Todd Terry‘s remix of Wes‘s Alane, a huge hit between 1996 and 1997:
