Seductive melancholia; music with an irresistibly morbid glamour. Includes the bonus CD Collector Number One, of demos and outtakes. We hear Thom Yorke of Radiohead likes them!

Drugstore - a unique band, back to give the world more beauty and music journalists more headaches. When they unleashed their eponymous debut album in 1995, critics practically exhausted their thesauruses heaping praise upon the band. By the time they released their sophomore album, White Magic For Lovers, the whole world was on board, with rave reviews from publications as diverse as Marie Claire, The Times, and Select. The band also scored a Top 20 hit single in the UK with the Pinochet-bashing "El President," featuring guest vocals by Thom Yorke of Radiohead!

A double disc set, Songs For The Jet Set is Drugstore's newest effort, an uptempo blast of piano, guitar and cello, all topped off with Monteiro's deliriously sexy vocals. The first single, "I Wanna Love You Like A Man" is a seductive tango backed by the gorgeous B side "Baby Don't Hurt Yourself," featuring Lambchop's Paul J. Niehaus. Disc Two, Collector Number One, is a "superb collection of home-demos, previously unreleased material and b-sides" (Amazon.co.uk). The original demo of "El President" that was sent to Thom Yorke appears here, along with a couple of new songs. This is Drugstore doing what they do best: producing intimate, cheeky love-bites for all your urban survival needs.
