The Lucksmiths broke up just over a year ago now, and they’re finally giving us what they promised at the time — a posthumous single of what may have been their last original recordings. The single is titled Get-To-Bed Birds after the A-side track, and it is available via Lost & Lonesome Records of Australia and Matinee Records in the US.
The B-side is titled “The World of Professional Golf 1994”. Limited to 1000 copies, the single is hand-numbered with half (evens) going to Matinee and half (odds) going to Lost & Lonesome.
I feel that most things that can be said about The Lucksmiths already have been said, and probably in a more eloquent fashion than any words I can conjure. So I’ll just let the good tune speak for itself. They’ve made “Get-To-Bed Birds” available as a free sneak peek:
