While she's not recorded anything in a few years, a lot of indie rock fans, especially those of us in the D.C. area, still love the music of Jenny Toomey. Co-founder of the seminal Simple Machines label, Toomey also sang and played music in awesome groups like Tsunami and Grenadine (with Mark Robinson of Unrest and Teenbeat Records).
Now Toomey is back with this tuneful taste of an upcoming single on the UK's Where It's At Is Where You Are label.
(I think I blogged about this wonderful label before when Sheffield's Standard Fare released something on it...and oddly this new Toomey cut sounds a tiny bit like Standard Fare!)
Jenny Toomey has teamed up with Franklin Bruno of Nothing Painted Blue as the Human Hearts and you can play the wonderful Pretenders-style "Distracted" below. Once you pre-order the single, you can download that song and then get the A-side when it's released.
I strongly urge you to do so!
