The Sway Machinery Play Michael Jackson

The Sway Machinery’s new album House of Friendly Ghosts, Vol. 1 won’t be out for another few weeks (who are they? check out our interview with the band) but this is too good not to share. The band, who recently returned from recording their new album in Africa, plays “Billie Jean” live in Mali. It’s everything we’ve come to expect from the band — intense, dark, fiercely danceable, with just the right amount of undercutting quirkiness. (The sound starts 2 or 3 seconds in, so be patient.)

If that’s not enough to whet your appetite — it’s less than a minute, after all — check out more YouTube videos of the band, or buy their new single.
