The Lucksmiths are a very happy bunch out of Melbourne Australia. Tuneful and charming, they have been kicking around for a decade and they have a very playful and wry sense of language. Plus also not inconsiderably twee!

I found refuge in the kitchen
Discussing post-war US literature
With a girl whose upper arm read “fiction”
Like it might have been typewritten
I asked her its significance
She said she sometimes took reminding
What she wanted to be doing
Whether reading it or writing
I admitted admiration
For both typeface and intent
And said more softly — sotto voce —
I knew too well what she meant

Hey it's my # 2 favorite boyfriends, The Lucksmiths. Did you know I got some mail today that I didn't even bother to open?
