To suffer greatly from the indignity of working for a living

Scanning the racks again, the January 21st issue of NME crowns "Us" as Track of the Week--a given, really, considering that it...
...surely must be the indie love song of the millennium...The way in which she manages to make the hiccoughed glottal stop in the word "contagious" sound like a mini-explosion of emotion is almost worth the asking price alone.
The first single off Soviet Kitsch is now of course drafted back into service as the second single off Mary Ann Meets the Gravediggers and Other Short Stories; the review even notes that the song is "about to blow out the candles on its second birthday cake" (not to be a gossip, but she's actually twice that age...you didn't hear it from me).

Anyway, Mary Ann... is out now on CD, as you probably already know, and the single is out next month, but you can pre-order your vinyl 7" from the men of Transgressive Records right now--apparently with artwork this time, and I must say that, even reduced to 1" square in the pulpy tabloid pages of the New Musical Express, it sure look purrty.

Srg, please come spread some sanity in the Brumstix. I have a feeling you can debunk (or bunk, as the case may be) this GEOGADDI guy's story.

Check his FEB-14 post in the "these things take forever" thread, and add some of your wisdom.
