Street Sweeper Social Club

So, a few weeks back, we premiered the track "Clap for the Killers," by Street Sweeper on the show. Since then, the band, which includes Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave fame and Boots Riley from the Marxist hip-hop group The Coup, has changed their name to Street Sweeper Social Club. Of course, they made this announcement through twitter on April 14th.

Anyways, recently the band put up a new track (their 4th to be released) on their myspace. The track called "100 Little Curses," sounds like their other 3 tracks, but a little less hip-hop. It's got the punk rock echo-y chanting and Morello's classic screwed-up guitar riffs. I think the track may need a little work before the album comes out on June 16th. You can pre-order the album from Amazon.com now.
