The Lucksmiths :: "Get-to-Bed Birds"

In a long kiss goodnight, The Lucksmiths have called it a career while simultaneously offering a final 7" single. For a band that suggested we strip to our t-shirts, reflected on aversion to cameras, and poked loving fun at The Smiths about a boy who never goes out, it is nothing short of a twee-colored funeral. Harder to say is whether "Get-to-Bed Birds" feels a little sad for its own reasons or because we know it marks the end. The guitars are bright, but the sun never fully emerges on this, the last trip around the block for a band without whom we would have so much less.
