Echo Park's Rainbow Arabia rolled up to WFMU with a U-Haul full of gear at 9 in the morning this Monday to record a set for my show and it was like some sort of middle eastern acid-washed troupe from the future-past had landed on Montgomery street: neon-polka-dotted Arabic Casio
keyboards, a mini percussion rack that could have belonged to either Jamie Lidell or my 4-year-old cousin, and a bunch of cutouts of safari animals. And that's pretty much what they sounded like: awesome. Husband and wife Danny (who you may know from Whiskey Biscuits) and Tiffany requested that I turn on the hip-hop bass filter to really get the radio audience jumping, and it really did. Just listen, you'll be glad you did.
