In honor of tonight's State of the Union, i'd like to post this track by Anitbalas, a Brooklyn afrobeat group. it has prescient anti-GOP lyrics to help rile you up.
Their album (Security) is pretty great, helped in part by producer John McEntire of Sea and Cake fame. As such the percussion sounds great. the whole thing sounds great. go John.
i've recently discovered afrobeat (Fela Kuti, etc.), so expect more posts on this subject.
While I'm on a semi-political rant, and i am now vaugely asserting that we should be able to post beyond music related issues (agree or disagree as you will in the comments), here is a great article by Christopher Hitchens on the recent Clinton/Obama scrape in SC.
As Quinapalus knows, i have a conflicted relationship with Hitchens. Despite that, i am allowing him to help me become more and more anti-Hillary.
