The Gay Agenda


By Edgar Casillas

TUNES: HBO breakout and New Zealand's fourth most popular folk parody duo Flight of the Conchords (above) release their first studio album, the appropriately titled Flight of the Conchords, April 22. Recorded between Wellington, Los Angeles, and New York City, the adorably offbeat duo's set includes concert and TV favorites like the synthy Pet Shop Boys spoof "Inner City Pressure" and the absurdly brilliant, Serge Gainsbourg'inspired opener, "Foux du Fafa." For once we suggest snagging the actual CD, which includes a flashy illustrated poster of our lovable goofballs Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie. Also out this week is the Gossip's Gossip: Live in Liverpool, a scorching CD and concert DVD package that includes the band's covers of Wham!'s "Careless Whisper" and Aaliyah's "Are You That Somebody?"
