Download “Galangs,” A Mash-Up Of M.I.A.’s Original And The Vijay Iyer Trio’s Cover

Now, the inimitable Wayne and Wax has taken the liberty of mashing the homage and the original together. Behold:

Historicity also features a version of Stevie Wonder’s “Big Brother,” if anyone else out there is feeling particularly bored today.
