Drowned in Sound have joined the Beggars Group Download Network thingyameebob, which basically is an online singles club and kicks off in style...
Right, for two english quids, you get the new Pretty Girls Make Graves single 'This Is Our Emergency' (hear a sample stream of it here), backed by 'All Medicated Geniuses'. Plus they through in the sleeve and cd artwork to print off to accompany your legally burnt cd single. It's available in both Windows & Mac formats. You can cough up using SMS, phone, credit/debit card, Paypal, and a few other means.
The single is taken from their blinding new old-skool-meets-new-school punka rocka album 'The New Romance' which is out on September 8th. PGMG hit the road with The Blood Brothers this month, as previously reported.

DiScuss: This new single format is great for the label and the acts, but will this new single set-up catch on with you? What will it take to insure value to downloads for you? Is £2 good value? Is the MP3 'problem' comparable with the Glastonbury Fence Jumping Situation or Illegal Raves? What do you reckon to the PGMG single?
