Backwards messages

We got a bunch of plays on less on merit and more on the fact that we are the newest band in the alternative category. Unfortunately, they have presented our music in reverse EP order, which means our weakest song is on top and getting all the plays, and "Distance" is at the bottom. And there seems to be no way to fix it. Very disappointing, because only slightly more than half of our listeners continued listening to us after "Thank You". Now, "Thank You" is a perfectly great song, it's just one of those songs that you are supposed to love only after you've listened to it a bunch of times. And it is not a representative Tonics track.

On the bright side, 14 strangers have good enough taste to listen to the whole EP. We also got our first two orders! We are aware, however, that our surge in popularity is an anomaly due to's generosity in providing coverage to new entries. There is much work to be done...
