Rose Elinor Dougall, ex-Pipette

The clear, luminous voice behind kenixfan's favorite Pipettes song, "Judy", has returned.

Rose Elinor Dougall has already released one solo single but another is just now out in the U.K. and, as I so happily discovered today, in the U.S. via iTunes!

The voice, so recognizable from the plaintive and funny Pipettes song, is layered over a melody strongly reminiscent of early Broadcast, like "The Book Lovers" but not as trippy.

Along with God Help The Girl, this is going to be the sound of my summer, circa 2009 (well, the new Manics too, I guess).

You can stream both the new A-side and flipside via the Elefant Records link below.

You can buy the new single from iTunes here.

And, you order the single as a download from Amazon in the United States beginning on June 14 here.

Or, you can order the VERY limited vinyl version from Elefant Records here.
