The Lucksmiths "A Hiccup In Your Happiness ***SOLD OUT***" CD $5 (L&L039)

Glorious second single lifted from the album ‘Warmer Corners’ plus three exclusive new tracks. 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. (Originally released in Australia by Candle Records in 2006.)
