Lightspeed Champion
Life Is Sweet! Nice to Meet You
(Domino)
Releasing: 1 February [U.K.] 16 February [U.S.]

“Marlene”, the first single from the sophomore Lightspeed Champion (of Test Icicles fame) album has a pretty snazzy trailer.

SONG LIST
01 Dead Head Blues
02 Marlene
03 There’s Nothing Underwater
04 Intermission
05 Faculty of Fears
06 The Big Guns of Highsmith
07 Romart
08 I Don’t Want to Wake Up Alone
09 Madame Van Damme
10 Smooth Day (At the Library)
11 Intermission 2
12 Sweetheart
13 Etude Op.3 “Goodnight Michalek”
14 Middle of the Dark
15 A Bridge and a Goodbye
