Songs of the Moment (An Occasional Feature)

> Modest Mouse - Gravity Rides Everything [mp3]
> Cat Power - Maybe Not
> M.I.A. - Paper Planes [YouTube]
I'm a little conflicted about her sampling of machine gun fire...but I really like this song.
> Liars - Pure Unevil
> Peter Bjorn and John - Amsterdam
> Rage Against the Machine - New Millenium Homes
I have no explanation for this one.
> Radiohead - All I Need [YouTube]

(P.S.: Check out M.I.A.'s website for a user interface apocalypse.)

Holy god, you weren't kidding. I only looked for a second and almost had a seizure.

That is one of the greatest samples ever! Too bad the video sucks!

It works great as a sample, but it does feel kinda weird to be rocking out to gunfire. The video's okay, but definitely not as good as the one for Galang.
