The new EP from Zen Boy & Karma Girl, featuring an acoustic version of the Beastie Boys' FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO PARTY.

Zen Boy & Karma Girl have been compared to Simon & Garfunkel, The Moldy Peaches, Belle & Sebastian, Donovan, The Innocence Mission, Leonard Cohen, Brian Wilson, and other notables. REVIEWS for Earth vs. Zen Boy & Karma Girl: ... a twisted identity and unearthly beautiful two-part harmony songs ... their version of 'Fight For Your Right To Party' is striking ... (Hans van Deelen, New Folk Sounds, Netherlands) ... a bit of sweetness and cosmic escape ... think Beach Boys, only more Zen ... like a soothing chamomile in a glass of boiling water ... even the cover of 'Fight for Your Right to Party' is a lullaby through the prism of the interstellar Zen Boy & Karma Girl ... they help us forget our trials and tribulations ... (David Vertessen, POP News, France) ... a sly sense of humor as well as an affinity for absurdity and cheese ... a pleasantly wacky collection of songs ... The overall sound is friendly and gentle, sweet melody and light arrangement ... their artistic approach: balancing inoffensive music with edgy lyrics ... their folksy take on 'Fight for Your Right to Party' is a good example of their skewed sensibilities ... an interesting collection of songs that should appeal to fans of folk music. Folk music from another dimension, that is! ... (Mike Alvarez, San Diego Troubadour) ... friendly melodies, lush harmonies and accompaniments, thoughtful lyrics ... a great '60s folk feel with Simon & Garfunkel-like vocal hamonies. Good sound and great out-of-this world character concept! (Mary Lemanski, Loosey Lucy) ... delightfully fun ... a real delight ... really good stuff and worth seeing what they come up with next ... they have a bright future ... (Kev, The Beat Surrender) ... simple, joyful, and fun ... The highlight has got to be a strange, acoustic version of 'Fight For Your Right To Party' ... Trust me, you've got to have balls to redo that song ... different, but it's pleasant. It's good. I like it. Way to go, people! ... (Andy Wilkins, Biggest Letdown) ... strumming their way with placidity, ease, and quirkiness, they conjure docile magic ... folky, harmonizing ear pillows ... it's own brand of contagious likeability. So wholesome and odd at the same time ... (David, Left of the Dial Magazine) ... I wasn't expecting the folk-pop contained in this EP ... there's something of an Aimee Mann sound to the duo ... their cover of "Fight For Your Right To Party" has a similar feel to early Eels, turning the rap classic into a sleepily sung alt-country number ... sweetly sung and strummed ...
