Here it is... the 2nd release from downdime and another perfect 7 inches of plastic you lucky, lucky people. "Hate The Morning" is four and a half minutes of relentless psych pop perfection and energy with a much fuller sounding production than the first 7" - this time courtesy of Alan Smyth at 2Fly Studios.
