Weekend video: Matt Elliot

So, um, anyone out there wondering just whatever happened to Third Eye Foundation? Yeah, so was I, and look what a little Internet digging turned up: turns out Matt Elliot's left his samplers and distortion pedals behind (way behind) and re-invented himself as a folk singer. This tune is the title track on his 2007 album, apparently the second in a trilogy. I understand all his stuff now has this sort of eastern European-inflected sound.

Not half bad, actually. And certainly a bold new direction. How come Beirut gets all the hype and I've never even heard of this until now?
