Posted By on Tue, Sep 22, 2009 at 10:50 AM

There must be something in the (now officially … sigh) fall air, because you folks have been flooding me with videos and MP3s to post of late. Thanks for that. And please, keep 'em coming!

Today's submission comes to us from Raph Worrick (the Dirtminers) and his nifty side project Plastic Billionaires. The song is a version of Brian Eno's "The Fat Lady of Limbourg," originally released on his 1974 record Taking Tiger Mountain and reimagined on the Billionaires cheekily titled 2009 effort, Bankrupting Tiger Mountain, which you can download via the link to their website above. Enjoy!
