The Distant Future
Label: Sub Pop Records
The year's funniest TV show results in 2007's best EP. What makes the Flight of the Conchords so special is that they are dead-on with their parodies, but their songs actually stand up on their own. This pairs three of the New Zealand duo's studio creations with three live renditions. The brilliant, Prince-worthy "The Most Beautiful Girl in the Room" is here, as is the inquisitive "If You're Into It." The Mick Jagger parody "Business Time" is so painfully true-to-life that it may result in a catastrophic rise in the global divorce rate.
