I'm f-cking with this hardbody too. I don't know much about this duo (and neither apparently, did the guy from the promo company who sent it to me - er, WTF??!?!!). All I know is if you like dirty lo-fi, fuzzed-out psychedelic/bluesy guitars over hip hop-inspired breakbeat-style drums, you need to get at this IMMEDIATELY. And it's not a one-off either - other tracks on their MySpace seem to follow a similar pattern. I'd someone like say Mark Ronson should produce these guys but he might make their sound too polished and pop!
Update: apparently they're working with Aesop Rock which explains the hip hop beats now.
