Still can't get enough of these two tracks from Rainbow Arabia with their catchy post punk ethnotronic beats. It's a shame the outfit tends to be a bit hit or miss when it comes to originality and has a tendency to border on overkill if you try to listen to both LPs in one sitting. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Still there are a few hidden gems on both Boys and Diamonds and Kabukimono [despite what Pitchfork's somewhat scathing review has to say] and these two tracks in particular are well worth a listen. Both are perfect additions to those fun random mixed cds you make for no reason other than because you just fucking feel like it and which thread perfectly into the seams of those much needed late night dancing and arting debaucheries. Pop a bottle, swirl some paint, get a little funky.
Swoonville, these lyrics and bongos are too much
Moody dancefloor synths, Bollywood-esque sounding vocals
