The Just Joans - Love and Other Hideous Accidents

New EP from the Just Joans over on Wee Pop!

The nine track EP is about £3, and there's a free download of track three 'Hideous Accident' here

I love the way their sounds has developed. Its probably not appropriate, but I think Hideous Accident sounds like the bastard love-child of Yazoo and Arab Strap, but it still features David Pope's signiture motif of including lines from other people's songs,
"I read the news today, oh boy"

I'm right on the crotch of my over draft, but I've ordered my copy of the EP mostly to hear the recorded version of track five, "If You Don't Pull..." It had me in tears when they played it at the Wee Pop! Birthday show last summer.

Its possibly the greatest song I heard last year, and maybe will be this year too.
