ModMusic: New Basement Jaxx Tracks

Via our secret lovemaster MK at Popbytes, we were lucky enough to get an early listen to Crazy Itch Radio, the upcoming release by UK house duo Basement Jaxx. I've always thought of the celebrated duo as a buy-the-singles, leave-the-rest experience, and I haven't changed my opinion completely with this set. But the good news: almost a half-dozen tracks here can stand with the Jaxx's best like "Red Alert", "Where's Your Head At" and "Oh My Gosh."

Since Popbytes has already uploaded "Hey You" and "Lights Go Down" for your listening pleasure, I'll choose a different path. "Hush Boy" is the album's opener, and it's pretty stupendous, funky and driving all at once.

UPDATE: Popbytes got a nasty letter from the Jaxx, and so we've removed these links. Sorry!
