In some of fall's more exciting news, Kurt Cobain's favorite band, The Vaselines, will release their first album in a decade on September 14. Sex With an X (on Sub Pop) is actually the Scottish duo's -- Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee -- second only proper studio album, the first being 1990's Dum Dum. Let's hear it for comebacks!
Here's a message from Sub Pop:
If you are among the first 200 people to pre-order Sex with an X by September 14th, you'll receive a bonus 7" featuring "White Chapel" b/w "Picked a Cherry", demos both recorded by Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub)--the latter not available on the new record.
And right now you can download the Vaselines' new single, also titled "Sex With an X," for free. Click here to do so -- the song is joyful, bouncy, and super-catchy. Love it.
This is actually our second taste of Sex With an X -- below you can listen to another new track, "I Hate The 80's."
