Slice of Samba: Futureheads, Paul Holcomb, Destroyer
The Futureheads - "He Knows" (courtesy of Bradley's Almanac)
This is a live track from the Futureheads' last stop in Boston a few weeks ago. I was at the show, and loved it, but not as much as I love it now. They are so crazy good live -- I hope you get the chance to witness it.
Paul Holcomb - "Ted's Techno Tubes" (courtesy of Yeti Don't Dance)
If you're not a big blog reader or a Daily Show aficionado, you probably haven't heard about this. This is cut-up actual audio footage from the Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, 85 year-old Ted Stevens. Keep in mind that this guy regulates internet activity in the United States when he mentions that the internet "is a series of tubes" and that when other people are downloading movies he can't get the internets that his staff sends him. Right.
Destroyer - "European Oils"
Many people are calling Dan Bejar's newest, Rubies, the album of the year, including awesome comedian and DJ Aziz Asnari. I haven't gotten a chance to hear the whole record, but you can listen to the track that people are loving, courtesy of Good Hodgkins.
