The Number Ones: S/T 12"
After what seems like quite a bit of delay, the vinyl for the #1s debut 12" is out! I put out their previous single so it's no secret that I absolutely adore this band, and I've been listening to this LP quite a bit. I have to admit that when I first got it I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more new material (it includes all three tracks from the "Sharon" single that I put out as well as several tracks from their previous EP and demo), but at the end of the day it's nice to have it all in one place (particularly for those of you who weren't lucky to grab the super hard to find first EP), and even one new track by this band would make a record worth getting. Oh, and if you haven't heard the #1s, they play upbeat, infectious power-pop in the tradition of bands like Protex and the Exploding Hearts, and for my money there is no one on the planet doing it better at the moment.
