Fujiya & Miyagi's Knickerbocker = more awesome krautrock to code to. Catchy, low-fi stuff.

Fujiya & Miyagi are actually 4 British dudes from Brighton. Not a funky lo fi outfit out of Japan like I expected.

According to wikipedia:
The origins of the band's name come from a character in the movie The Karate Kid as well as the brand of a record player... The story of how they met and formed the band variously reports a mutual hero-worship of world heavyweight wrestler Kendo Nagasaki, and a shared interest in krautrock and early-nineties electronica discovered while warming the subs bench during Sunday league football.

Earlier I praised YouTube's recommended list... but man when I watched this music video, they advertised the crap out of it. They had over-video ads for Guns N Roses' new album Chinese Democracy. What, if I'm listening to Fujiya and Miyagi, YouTube thinks I'm going to like overproduced soulless genetically engineered Pro Tools music?

I guess you can't exactly pull Pandora/Songkick metadata in to get music genre similarity for ads... but it would be a great way to do ads for music.

Hat tip to Patrick -- his posterous iTunes podcast is awesome.
