New Music for You

George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People


I've been on a downloading spree the past few days, and I thought I'd share some of my favorite finds with you, dear readers. Check them out, and let me know what you think.

I'm sure you all remember Kanye West's now infamous ad lib during the Hurricane Katrina fundraiser. Well, The Legendary K.O has taken a line (and a tune) from Kanye, and given us my vote for single of the year: George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People. While you're at it, check out Kanye's Gold Digger in Real Audio or Windows Media low or high

Kanye not your thing? How about indie rock covers of bad 80s songs? Check out Death Cab for Cutie and Mike Doughty's take on Hungry Like the Wolf. Word of warning, it's taken from a live show in Seattle, so the quality isn't the best. But still so very worth it. Metroblog has the video

Speaking of indie rock covers, seems like everyone loves Yeah Yeah Yeahs these days. First, Ted Leo breaks into Maps in the middle of his brilliant rendition of Kelly Clarkson's Since U Been Gone, and now The Arcade Fire takes on the entire song.

Finally, I've fallen in love with Detroit's favorite dandy-rockers, PAS/CAL, and this demo of O Honey, We're Ridiculous.

Most of this shit comes from gorilla vs. bear, so head over there for more great songs.

MC Paul Barman goes political, develops vague modicum of flow:
