Things Are What They Used to Be is the third studio album by Zoot Woman. It was released through Zoot Woman Records in 2009.
Zoot Woman had their moments, particularly on the occasionally sublime debut album, Living in a Magazine. This third album eschews the blue-eyed pop-soul of that record in favour of exhuming the bones of electro-clash (if ever the dead should be left in peac. and, of course, the 80s.

All things considered, though, Price sidesteps these two problems very adeptly indeed: the latter via a very human lyrical engagement rather than any attempted cultural statement, and the former by casting himself as an everyman figure buoyed by a swell of furious technical luminescence.
