Here Comes the Bird Flu
Boy, oh boy, do I think this woman is something. MIA is coming out with her next album this year. The picture above is from her recent trip to Jamaica in which she was filming her next video. Mr. Peacock and I have been coming up with comparisons or analogies of artists today. For instance, the Joe Strummer of the modern era is Damon Albarn. He dabbles in music that white people are afraid to touch unless they are being tongue and cheek. James Murphy is a mix of Ralf Hutter and Mark E. Smith or something of that matter. Finally, honestly, I think MIA is a one woman Clash. She is politcal, fun, sexy, creative, and steps ahead of the game. I guess that makes Diplo Don Letts. The new album is apparently called KALA. It is going to be so damn good that people will literally melt, just like Raiders. So, basically this post is just hyping her up. She deserves it. With all that said, hopefully this song will get you going.
