Singles Going Single #132 - The Hang Ups (1995, Grimsby)
The Hangs Ups were a '90s indie pop troupe from Minneapolis, who bore a sound resembling The Gigolo Aunts a whole lot more than celebrated hometown predecessors Husker Du and Soul Asylum. The A-side here, "Top of Morning," is about as quintessential and delectable as their genre of choice had to offer in the mid-90s, while the acoustic flip, "Wishin' I Was a Plane" is notably more intimate. If this is to your liking, I'd also recommend their So We Go cd, which you can get directly from the label that minted it (Clean/Twin Tone), or for a bargain basement price through Amazon. There's a bio on the Hangs Up here, and a Wiki entry as well.
