Not to be overlooked in 2007

Irving made it onto several distinguished lists 0f 2006 including placing with "Death in the Garden, Blood on the Flowers" on the iTunes US "Best of 2006" Rock/Alt Indie Spotlight and most recently on Chartattack's Most Overlooked of 2006 list.

Chartattack lists them among other snubbed classics CSS - Cansei De Ser Sexy, Beirut - Gulag Orkestar and Camera Obscura - Let's Get Out Of This Country. The review compliments the record freely with "combines the psych-tinged sensiblilities of The Dandy Warhols with the oversexed swagger of Franz Ferdinand." Wowee! I think I'd like to have that printed on my tombstone.

We're gearing up for the holidays around here,
