Leeds' Downdime have released their second single on the Squirrel Records label. The 7" - titled "Hate The Morning" - comes backed with "Joanne" and is available at Jumbo, Rough Trade and Piccadilly Records (Manchester) or via mail-order at the Squirrel Records website.

Described as "four and a half minutes of relentless psych pop perfection and energy", the single comes courtesy of Alan Smyth at 2Fly Studios, with its flipside "Joanne" a long time live favourite.
