It's all go on the Hot Puppies front at the moment. Not only do the Aberystwyth five-piece have a new album, Blue Hands, coming out in late September, but band members Bec & Beth have also recorded an EP of acoustic songs, Where We're From The Birds Sing A Pretty Song, which is available to buy on 7" and as a download (from the iTunes Store) even as
As well as one original composition, French Song, the EP contains three covers: Burt Bacharach's Anyone Who Had A Heart, The Inkspots' I'm Making Believe and The Smiths' Last Night I Dreamt Somebody Loved Me. A couple of these fine songs (the first two) can be streamed on the girls' MySpace page.
This is all terribly exciting for yours truly, by the way, as The Hot Puppies are quite possibly my favourite contemporary British band. Here they are in full effect performing The Word On The Street as part of a Liveroom.TV session (the rest of which can be accessed if you click on the linky thing below it).

And remember, remember, the 29th of September: it's when Blue Hands hits the streets!
