Rich has already mentioned what huge fans we are of the brilliant Flight of the Conchords series on HBO. As the cult of the Conchords continues to spread, I've been frustrated that so little of their music is available (crappy TV rips notwithstanding), and wondering why Sub Pop didn't get a CD out in time to coincide with all the buzz from the show. Word from Sub Pop now is that a full-length Conchords record won't be out until early 2008. But last Tuesday they did finally release an EP, The Distant Future, featuring three studio tracks (a teaser for the long-player to come) and two more songs recorded live. Still no studio version of "The Most Beautiful Girl In The Room" (a/k/a "Part-Time Model"), but for now, I guess it'll have to do.
