Ilad at Talking Head 2/1

With the state of the world today, most of our music choices wisely revolve around escape and detachment. Richmond's Ilad, however, have chosen to attack our country's foreign relations crisis head-on with the world's most powerful weapon - heady jams. But it's not all falafel wraps and hand claps - Ilad make political commentary fun with twisting foam snake flows for the carpool.

Ilad - National Flags*
Ilad - Holy Wars

Pick up their new LP National Flags, produced and recorded by John Mcentire of Tortoise and Stereolab, or better yet catch them at the Talking Head next Friday 2/1.

*A note for our ADD readers, this song picks up around the three minute mark and it's pretty dirty.
