We currently live in north central Austin (78758, in that giant middle class 70s tract development to the east of the Domain). We are looking to move, and aquantances of ours have a house for sale in old town Georgetown. The house is a perfect fit for us (older, bigger, better shape, oodles of charm, hardwood floors) as is the neighborhood (extremely walkable, kid-safe, families, parks, schools very close), but all we know about Georgetown is a few visits to Monument Cafe over the years, and the occasional visit to downtown. How is life in Georgetown? [more inside]

This is a case of forgetting to write something down. I was in a record shop in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle, and the shopkeep was spinning a record that I enjoyed a made a mental note to look the band/album up when I got home. And now a night has passed and the details I remember are coming up with nada when googled.
The details: 1. The band name was something that ended in "-ex", like Solex or Purex. I remember thinking it kinda sounded like it could be the name of a condom. 2. The clerk said it was released "last year" (he could have meant 2011 or 2012). 3. The album cover was a letterboxed (think Joy Division's "Closer") picture of a rose and a chain, the rest of the cover was red.
