The second shot out of the Jay Reatard 7" onslaught, and its even better than the first. Besides being an ingenious way to lead up to a record this is shaping up to be one of the best strings of singles out this year.

Jay Reatard - Painted Shut 7"
A double shot of Power Pop from the Reatard camp. These singles have much more of the feel of his string of 7"s that surrounded Blood Visions, less straight fueled garage punk and more of the new wave and huge pop hooks sneaking in. This pair certainly
wouldn't feel out of place alongside "Hammer I Miss You", but honestly the b-side on this one has quickly risen the ranks to be one of my favorite of Jay's tracks yet. It's that sprightly organ that kills me. Pick this one up wherever you can, because as you may well know with each single that Matador chucks outta the door they become more and more scarce.
