The album was preceded by a limited edition, 7" only release of 'Cokeholes' b/w 'Yellowhills' and 'Lost Youth Pt.

2'. There's a cinematic quality to the album, like it's been recorded in widescreen, whilst track titles like 'The Town Of Half Finished Buildings' and 'Blind Girls Music Box' belie a literary bent. There are songs which comment on the state of things ('Cokeholes', 'Call Girl'), but there are also moments of simple, life-affirming beauty ('A Cool Breeze On The Back Of The Neck', 'Wish I'd Been Born A Baby'). We're excited and intrigued to see and hear how Death Of The Neighbourhood will develop. Work has started on the second album which will be released sometime 2010.
