The Distant Future is a teaser EP (6 Tracks) for the Flight of the Conchords full length album, slated for release early 2008. The New Zealand duo of Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie debuted their new HBO comedy series on June 17th in the USA, details on the Australian TV airing dates soon. This specially priced release contains their fan-favourites "Business Time" and "If You're Into It" as well as the non-album studio cut, "Crying" and two live versions. HBO's publicity blitz has already begun, with appearances on Letterman and Conan, World Caf, All Things Considered and much more.

While I wish either this or the 'Folk The World Tour' album contained the studio/show tracks (i.e. for songs like BOOM!, Robots, etc.), these are still pretty good--especially for a (mostly) live album. You can also get free mp3s off their site--google 'em and you'll find a few not on either album.
With the live show recordings, there's a great freshness to their banter that illustrates just how talented these guys really are (esp. on the fly). Buy this...and don't forget to check out their 'Folk The World Tour' album, too!
If you're not familiar with Flight of the Conchords, they write humorous songs that sound surprisingly "normal." The band is made up of two men from New Zealand. The TV show (on HBO) follows their attempt to make their band successful in New York City.
This EP is great and I just can't get enough, I'm really looking forward to the full album. I became a fan of these guys back in 2005 when I first saw them on HBO and I am so glad that are now getting some real recognition.
Also amazon.co.uk has the "Complete BBC Radio Series" three CD set with a running time of three hours. Most of the material has been reused for the HBO show but it is all still very funny. You should check that out as well.
