Download an EP from Central Services, the Bitter Cynic's Gnarls Barkley

If you're like everyone in the world, you've been into Cee-Lo's irrepressibly catchy reprisal anthem, “Fuck You.” Maybe you've even checked it out in Spanish!

Well. Think that's subversive? Try “Fuck Me.”

Meet Camu Tao: Ohio player, Def Jux staple, and member of some of underground rap's most venerable crews, including The Weathermen (along with Aesop Rock) and MHz (along with Rjd2). Camu died in 2008, at 30, of lung cancer, before his solo debut saw the light of day. That album, King of Hearts, was finally released on Def Jux a few weeks ago; you can nab it here. As an appetite-whetter, though, the label is giving you the first hit free. Head here to download Forever Frozen in Television Time, an EP recorded in 2004-5 by Central Services, a.k.a. Camu and El-P, “under the influence of several illicit substances between the hours of 3am and 8am.” (Fittingly, the only non-original cut is a “cover” of Huey Lewis's “I Want A New Drug,” with “want” changed to “need.”)
