After making the Eastern Hemisphere laugh for the past five years, the Flight of the Conchords
has finally taken off stateside, giving us a reason to hang on to that HBO subscription for a little while longer. Formerly promoting itself as "New Zealand's fourth most popular folk parody act," the Kiwi duo made its American debut on the Sub Pop imprint last week with The Distant Future
EP. Head over to Spinner.com's MP3 of the Day section for the lead-off track, "Business Time." And while you're waiting for the full-length (due early 2008), hit up the band's fan sites for a wealth of downloads, including in-studio performances and unreleased songs from FoTC's early days.
