"Hammer and a Nail" from Vienna Ditto

Cabaret, rockabilly, electro-rock, psychedelic pop, and theatrical pop -- all in one glorious song.  Yes, "Hammer and A Nail" demonstrates Vienna Ditto's ability to be audaciously different, and completely captivating as well.  Hatty Taylor's voice is a seductive, smokey, bluesy force of nature, and I want to hear it all day and night.  Nigel Firth's production is inspired, and deliciously dirty.  This single from the London duo will be released on February 23, in advance of the May 4 release of their LP Circle.  Take the goods for a test drive below.  Then have a smoke and a shower -- you'll have earned it.  Damn, May 4 seems like such a long way away.
