Diplo leaks new M.I.A. snippet

Yo, everybody work your way over to the Mad Decent tourblog and cop Bonde Do Role's freestyle over the "Still Tippin'" beat, recorded live on Houston's essential Damage Control radio show. (This was before Bonde singer Marina busted her arm at the Pitchfork festival the other day.)

What Lemon-Red declines to mention is that, during the same session, and while taking over the Damage Control decks, Diplo oopsie-previewed an unnamed new song presumably from the next M.I.A. album. That's about all anyone seems to know about it; yes, we're too lazy to throw it into Audacity and pull it out for you. We're sure Stereogum or someone will do so presently. As it is, you should totally download the whole 3 hr/143 mb file -- if not for Diplo's set (more bonkers than usual) then for what's good in Texas, which still marches to its own beat even now that the MSM circus has left town. Like, that Jokaman track (with "real monkeys!") is real ruthless. Oh, and if you just want to skip to the M.I.A., then you can just slide on over to 2:33:10. Before you get too excited, Maya's snippet is under a minute and less than one verse. Sounds . . . well, it sounds real weird. Which is what you wanted, right?
