New Flight of the Conchords - "Ladies of the World"

Download: Flight of the Conchords - "Ladies of the World

Flight of the Conchords, New Zealand's fourth most popular folk-parody duo, may not be coming back to television until next year, but those who cannot wait for new music from the rhymenoceros and the hiphopopatmus (whose lyrics are...) can take comfort. Sub Pop has just released the new single from the pair's upcoming self-titled effort. "Ladies of the World" is the kind of faux 70s-soul ditty that happens to be the group's forte, but there's a little better production value here; the haunting fade-out is impressive. As for the lyrics, the band keeps on wanting to make things special for the ladies of the world, or even the hermaphodites of the world. In fact, Jemaine Clement raps that "with your lady bits/and your man bits/you must be even into you."

In short, it's classic Conchords material, though a bit abrupt toward the end. But not only have the band released the first single, there's cover art and tracklisting too! Check one out at the top, and the other right here:
