    Here's another winner for you in a similar vein: Dry Cleaning "New Long Leg" on 4AD. Female vocals that incorporate spoken word. They remind me of Magazine a little bit.

    I picked up their new one and was very impressed. The song "Walking In Storms" is a real highlight after only a few spins. Genesis with a little more muscle? Will have to check out the debut next.
