Arrow M.i.a.

Alright, me being a newbie and all, I dont know if this artist has been discussed as of yet.

Anyone familiar with M.I.A.? I was hesitant on posting her within the indie/alternative category, considering her sound is somewhat bottomless. Her inspirations come from drum and bass, punk, middle eastern, bhangra, hip hop, electro, tribal, etc.

Anyways, I'm a huge fan of hers and I recently had the opportunity to witness her live for the second time. She's a beast, her sound is completely her own. She brings such a diverse group of people to her shows as well, which is always nice to see.

check out these tracks:

From her 1st Arular
- Bingo
- 10 Dollar
- Galang
- Bucky Done Gun

From her 2nd LP Kala
- Bamboo Banga
- Paper Planes
- XR2
- 20 Dollar
- Hussel
- Boyz

Give her a chance. You either get her or you dont really.
