Funky Friday - Hiding The Truth And Rights

Image Hosted by

Thievery Corporation released a new EP this week called Babylon Rewound. It's a bunch of remixes from their last album, done by themselves, Kid Loco and Voidd. It also includes a previously unreleased tune, Truth And Rights. It's a typically nice dub and hip hop blend with guest vocalist Sleepywonder toasting. Lyrically it relates directly to this week's election in the US - "The prostitutes gather at the top of Constitution Avenue to dictate what I can say or do", or "They keep hiding the truth and rights but we gonna find it, the forked tongues the blue bloods cold hearts they're the ones who design it". Beats to move your feet with words to make you think - a perfect combination.
