Just my FAVOURITE band at the moment. Led by the enigmatic Tod A and featuring Tamir Muskat from Balkan Beat Box (in later incarnations anyway). They've recorded six albums in total. This is taken from their latest album The Golden Hour which Tod A recorded after a three year trip, roaming around the world for inspiration and picking up even more influences than before. He said in an interview that he'd grown tired and embarrassed of being an American under the Bush administration and wanted to see the places they were bombing. Unfortunately he only made it to the borders of Afghanistan but pretty much covered everywhere else.
Anyway this is just a superb performance of one of the stand-out tracks from The Golden Hour.
