M.I.A. on KCRW
In keeping with M.I.A. theme week here on gorilla vs. bear, we have a couple of songs from her performance on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic yesterday in convenient mp3 format (thanks to Garrison). With DJ Low Bee in tow, M.I.A. tore through quite a bit of Kala, including Pixies-borrowing slow jam "$20," and "Paper Planes," our favorite track from the record (and one of 2007's best so far). M.I.A. also talked about how she was denied entry into the U.S. earlier this year because she was on "the freaking list."
