Ted Leo and the Pharmacists – Bottled in Cork free digital single

Have ye heard this? I don’t know how Ted Leo consistently writes such solid songs, not to mention how he gets through a song like this on stage without passing out. Not a lot of room for breaths in this one! The entire new album is terrific. I am told that it is out today as a single, with a demo version as the B-side:

Bottled in Cork (zipfile with 160K MP3s and cover image)

Incidentally, he also turned in what is far and away the best remix of a Spoon song ever. I still haven’t seen him since then so if you do, please pass along my appreciation.
