Found 'em. Do you know how freaking hard it is to find a band called "Cinnamon" with Google when the only thing you know about them is that they did a song called "Cakes and Pies"? Jesus. Anyway, give them a listen if you can- I've tried to track down freebie tracks or clips that are long enough to give you an impression, but no dice. They're like a spastic, glitchy, but still funky and silly...well...Cibo Matto, kinda. I feel like an ass immediately comparing them to another all-Japanese female-fronted band, but it's really the only comparison I can think of. Similar kind of silliness, albeit with more current electronic sounds- and they even sing about food too.

And the Modular People label out of Australia are hosting a nice hour-long mix by Cut Copy, which you can download after joining their mailing list. It's worth the hassle, believe me.

The word on Cinnamon and the second link both via the superlative Music For Robots.

Days until a new bandwidth billing cycle: 14.

I couldn't get to the cut copy mix at modular people. The download was replaced by a (pretty cool) video of the Avalanches live. But after a little searching I found a link to the mix:

Great blog by the way,
