Lucksmiths, The - A Hiccup In Your Happiness

Matinee
(MR060: 837101143912)



1. A Hiccup In Your Happiness
2. From Macaulay Station
3. Rue Something
4. To Absent Votes

Glorious second single lifted from recent album Warmer Corners plus three exclusive new tracks validate yet again why The Lucksmiths are among the most popular indie bands of our time. One listen to ‘A Hiccup In Your Happiness’ and you know it’s apt to be blasted from car stereos and iPods all day long. Boasting strings, horns, some seriously funky guitar and a bassline possibly borrowed from Orange Juice, the song is a dancefloor sizzler that just had to be a single. Its magnificent b-sides are all set in actual places: ‘From Macaulay Station’ is an ode to one of the unlovelier stops on Melbourne’s rail network, ‘Rue Something’ a more-or-less factual account of an evening spent on tour in Paris, and ‘To Absent Votes’ a tale of election night in the Australian outback town of Lake Cargelligo. Combined with ‘A Hiccup In Your Happiness’ they create a brilliant EP designed to give ‘Warmer Corners’ another shot at the glory it deserves. Limited to 1000 copies in custom minijacket sleeve with liner notes from comedian Daniel Kitson.
