The Go! Team - Ladyflash (Live @ KEXD)

Alright, hands up, who's getting sick of hearing about The Go! Team out there? Anyone? In the past year or so these Brits have gotten a ton of attention (and deservedly so). The problem is that they've been touring like crazy and milking the same set of songs for a couple years now, and there hasn't been anything new to get excited about. It kind of puts them in a class with Sufjan Stevens, Mr. Overexposure himself. And although they've managed to release a slew of singles and tour-only EPs, it just makes it even more painfully obvious that they need some new songs. But in the meantime, why not add one more EP to the pile, right? Audio Assault Course: The College Radio Sessions, features 6 live tracks plus the Kevin Shields "Huddle Flash" mash-up/remix. I don't know if it's actually available in stores or if it just got sent to bloggers and college radio stations, but here are a couple of the live songs from it. I used to whine about how The Go! Team's live show is missing a lot of the instrumentation and samples in their studio recordings, but I kind of forgot that it also adds energy and live vocals to the songs as well.
