The above is from the Enormous Room on Tuesday night, where Mission of Burma's Peter Prescott and Roger Miller manned the decks during the local release party for Burma's new The Obliterati. What did they play? Well, the entire album, for starters, and then some stuff you wouldn't expect. Brazilian funk? Missy Elliottt? Public Enemy? Full report can be found online over here. And yes, the song below is a gift from the Burma camp to you: previously referred to by us as the song title of the month, "Donna Sumeria" is track three off the new record. We arrived at track 3 after falling in love also with tracks 1, 4, and 5, and then not being able to decide on which one to single out. That 2 is pretty good too.
