Bright Lightx2: The boy done good

Bright Light Bright Light - Rod Thomas - has signed a deal with new label Popjustice Hi-Fi. His first single, Love Part II, out on September 12/13, is the official launch of fall as far as I'm concerned.
Amazingly, PJ Hi-Fi is giving away the brilliant b-side,Cry At Films, which features Del Marquis from Scissor Sisters on backing vocals and guitar. Rod says, "[Cry At Films] is one of my favourites that I've written... it introduces both the more optimistic and more melodramatic sides of me. And having Del on it is such an honour."
Rod is a lovely guy and Peter Robinson (who produces PopJustice and created PopJustice HiFi) is, no doubt, a true lover of music. A true fan. No matter what happens, this is a brilliant match.
The actual single, Love Part II is anthemic, but also has a bit of the beloved crying-at-the-disco moodiness. Note that it was produced by Andy Chatterley, the same man who co-wrote and co-produced Kylie Minogue's new tracks Aphrodite and Better Than Today. Mmm hmmmm...
