Mancunian power-poppers Milk Maid prove the simple formula of infectious melodies and laid-back instrumentation is as irresistible as ever. The band, who are fronted by the bassist of Nine Black Alps Martin Cohen, successfully combine the infectious pop sentiment of Teenage Fanclub and the lo-fi edginess of Guided by Voices.

Your Neck Around Mine is released on 26/11/12 (available here) and the band have also just announced tour dates including support slots with The Cribs.
