review on Bandwidth

Bandwidth have done a lovely piece on the Human Hearts single:

For the first time since 2002′s Tempting, Toomey’s voice appears on a new record—a 7-inch single by New York outfit Human Hearts, expected out in November via English label Where It’s At Is Where You Are. It’s another Toomey collaboration with songwriter Franklin Bruno, her longtime pal and off/on creative partner, and violinist and vocalist Jean Cook, who has played with Pulp, The Mekons’ Jon Langford and D.C.’s Beauty Pill, among others.
The record’s jumpy B-side, “Distracted” (stream it below), is a Motown-tinged pop song that Bruno wrote with Toomey’s hectic lifestyle in mind. ”She’s very connected, and she was one of the first people that I knew well who frequently had their Blackberry or what have you,” Bruno says. (“It wasn’t a Blackberry, it was a Treo,” Toomey points out.) “Usually when we’re getting together to do a session, her husband will call at least once, and there’s a lot of phones and screens and tablets in the room.”
thanks very much Bandwidth!

wiaiwya-7777777 shipments

are you eagerly waiting for your next wiaiwya-7777777 picture discs?

because postage has gone up so much this year, i'll be sending out all four of the remaining singles together - i hope that's OK with everyone who has subscribed

the final records will be with me in the next 2-3 weeks, the stickers and fanzines have already arrived, and the totes are being made too, so i'm expecting everything to be in the post before the release date for the new My Favorite single (7th Oct)

just shout if you have any questions...
