Menace Beach was on my to-do list. No joke. When I heard their song Tennis Court a few weeks back, I penciled them in for a longer listen and a mention on this humble yet tiny corner of the internet. I didn't listen to the 2nd song on the single, Lowtalkin'.
Today, on NME, Lowtalkin' was featured, and then a Twitter mention from Lan McArdle of Joanna Gruesome and Ides pushed me to this new song which she provided backing vocals -- Lowtalkin'. While I enjoyed Tennis Court, Lowtalkin' blows it out of the water. It's got this frenzied urgency about it that hooked me. Give it a listen. What do you think?
