Those swoonfully boootiful blue-boys who stole our hearts with their timeless pop gems during the apparent, new accoustic movement, ebbing like the waves of change from their dusty debut 'The Optimist', filled with its surreal pictures to paste all over the inside of your cracked skull; are back.
Well anyway, they hit a studio in LA a little while ago to start on the second LP (yet to be titled) and are finishing the planned springtime release at the mo' in London. To wet our appetites they're putting out a single 'Long Distance' on October 6th and they're playing the following, special, acoustic shows which Turinbrakes.com reports will have "a 'visual' element". We suspect that means a big projector with strange cinematics.
