Why is it that M.I.A's mixtape was sooooo much better than her album? It seems like she's saving up the good stuff for free handouts on the internet. Yesterday, the discarded track "Zig Zag" surfaced and to be fair: it's really silly. Maybe even too silly to make it unto a major album release. But who cares about all that? It's fun. It's got a great beat, a chorus that goes "ho-oh-oh-ooh-ooh" (a 'sample' of New Kids On The Block "The Right Stuff") and it rhymes 'faux pas' and 'je ne sais quoi' with oom-pah-pah.
MP3 links to "Zig Zag" and last year's essential "Vicki Leekx Mixtape" after the jumpah-pah. Download that *ish like rrrrrrrrritsj!
