Press Release :
One of the stand-out tracks from Fink's follow-up album, "Distance And Time", "Little Blue Mailbox" is one of those epic, sweeping, magisterial pieces of music that quietly takes you by the hand, leads you into the middle of a beautiful storm and finally drops you back to a home where everything feels like it's been changed forever.

The track that most embodies the sonic and compositional evolution since Fink's critically acclaimed debut "Biscuits For Breakfast," "Little Blue Mailbox" is a fantastic showcase for the sophistication and integrity which is woven into every note on the new album. But it's the sheer intensity and drama of the song's conclusion, which takes it way beyond the work of softer-spoken singer songwriters.

Flip over and Fink offers up another golden nugget from the album - "Blueberry Pancakes" is an effectively rocked-up and rugged tale of boy-meets-waitress, boy-sleeps-with-waitress, boy-has-long-term-relationship-with-waitress, it-all-goes-wrong. Fink proves himself the master of the the kind of incidental detail that always obsesses you when a relationship goes down the pan, but also gives the genre the kind of muscularity it so often lacks. The package is rounded out by a truly unexpected version of Kraftwerk's "The Model," here reimagined as a dub-folk relationship trauma of surprising warmth and beauty.
