wang dang, that's that MIA Slang

So it looks like M.I.A. has just signed on to perform at Sirenfest this year, making the complete lineup the New York Dolls, Elvis Perkins, Cursive, Voxtrot, White Rabbits, We Are Scientists, Matt and Kim, the Black Lips, Dr. Dog, Noisettes, Lavender Diamond, The Detroit Cobras, The Twilight Sad, and Ms. Arulpragasam herself.

I'd be a liar if I said I wasn't excited about seeing M.I.A. live. Especially on a hot summer day at the beach. It bums me out immensely that Coney Island is dying, but with this and Daft Punk, at least I know I'll have two occasions to shake my rump there before it all goes down.

This new track is cool. The beat reminds me more of the go! team than it does Arular. Fine by me.
