The Fiery Furnaces – “Single Again” 12”
Rough Trade, 2004
Acquired: Love Garden, Used, 2007
I picked this up when I went on a mad spree of going through all of the Alternative 7-inch records at Love Garden. Each one was 25 cents and I ended up spending $35 and coming home with some fucking amazing records. I grabbed this mostly because it had “Here Comes the Summer” on the B-side, which might be my favorite Fiery Furnaces song (and it is NOT an Undertones cover. Ironically, I have the Undertones “Here Comes the Summer” on 7” though). Ok, it probably is. “Single Again” is a jam, but I think they’re at their best when they’re doing upbeat art-pop songs you can shake your ass to.
