And the album is even better. Has everyone heard it yet? I love the lyrics to 'We're So DIY!'

They were fab at SF Popfest.

And they're planning a UK trip for next summer (including indietracks).

Really? That's amazing news.

I might take this to work and subject the divot across from me to it today.

Round here it's just "YEEEEERRRRRSSSE", that sort of "WEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYY" sound that i think may have mutated from 'wahey', or just "IS RIGHT!" But that's Lipewl for you.

In real life I just nod my head slowly with the corners of my mouth slightly more upturned than usual, but that doesn't translate too well to the internet.

We have a free download of the new Math and Physics Club single 'Jimmy Had A Polaroid' here:

http://www.indiepages.com/matinee/sounds/mapc07.mp3

That smart fellow Sam from A Layer of Chips calls it "the sort of song that will make you throw your hands in the air like you just don't care and waggle your legs around like a duck with Alzheimer's," while the always spot-on Kieron from In Love With These Times says it's "two and half minutes of indie-pop righteousness that was born - luckily enough - to be a 7" A-side." Certainly these are gentlemen you can trust.

enjoy!
Jimmy

Sorry if I'm being thick but is the new album out in the UK yet? I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

I don't know, but it was only just over a tenner (including postage) when I bought it direct from matinee. It came in something like 5 days as well.

Good shout. I was hoping something like Pebble would get it in though, maybe.

Hi Colin,

Pebble Records and Rough Trade both have stocked the album although Rough Trade just reordered this morning so they may be out at the moment. More are on the way today though.

thanks,
Jimmy

I'm surprised there hasn't been much (any) conversation on here about the new album yet. I still need to listen to it a bit more but what I've heard has been pretty ace. I've been listening to it in the shower each morning and the songs are stuck in my head all day. You probably didn't need to know that...

It hasn't really made a huge impression on me yet to be honest. It's really nice, but I don't think there's much on there to match the first album.

Controversial! I kind of prefer it to the first album so far. I suppose they're not the kind of band to blow your head off, are they? Nice is an appropriate word, even if it seems like damming with faint praise.

Yeah, stuff like Darling Please Come Home and Cold As Minnesota does blow my head off in a way though, despite being fairly gentle. There's nothing like that that's drawn baack to the new one very often.

I think there are much better songs on this one. They sound lots more confident, and that's a great thing. I love the first album, but there's nothing on there like 'Everybody Loves a Showtune' or 'We're So DIY'. And I don't think they could carry on with the sort of stuff they were doing on the first album without getting fed up.

I'm probably talking shite, like.

'Graduation Day' on the old i-plop on the way into work. What a great song to be stuck away on a b-side. It really reminds me of something off The Smiths' first album, or something.
