Tune of the Month
Originally by Nigerian funk musician William Onyeabor, Atomic Bomb! is covered here by Hot Chip, a newer indietronica group hailing from the UK. Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip even went on to join up with Atomic Bomb Band, a supergroup dedicated to playing the music of Onyeabor. This month marks the 4th anniversary of Onyeabor's passing; we are happy to see his work still bringing together national and generational gaps in the music industry.
