WARDEN TRACKS... Remember that song, "Scooby Snacks" from the late 90's?  It was by a band called Fun Lovin' Criminals, and they are wicked!  Their mix of rock, hip-hop, funk, etc. always sounds great at a party, and lots of their stuff has a comedic side too.  I think one of their best albums is "100% Colombian," from 1998, which contains today's feature track.  The tune is called "Korean Bodega," enjoy!

NEW MUSIC THIS WEEK... There's NOT a lot of new music releases over the holiday season, but tomorrow you'll find the following on Amazon, iTunes, and in stores: ARMIN VAN BUUREN - "State Of Trance: Year Mix 2013," BLUTENGEL - "Once In A Lifetime," DOGFACE - "Back In The Streets," KARASH - "Shapeshifter," MAC DRE & KILO CURT - "From The Ground Up," MAJESTY - "Banners High," and SUICIDE COMMANDO - "Unterwelt (Re-Issue)."
