Download Free MP3 Of Polarity/1's "Plunder"

The appropriately titled "Plunder" begins with a Bernie Madoff impersonator admitting to the now infamous ponzi scheme, which has since led to a 150 year prison sentence. As the song progresses, clips from this speech are cleverly inserted throughout the verses. The production is fantastic, and although it’s certainly not organic in nature, the horns and funky bass line keep it grounded, and prevent it from becoming just a jumble of computer loops. With clever lines like "easy credit, easy crime, American dream, death by subprime," Plunder succeeds in portraying the current dismal economic picture. However, despite the grim nature of the lyrics, the track is ironically upbeat, and in the end, it makes you want to dance, even though the subject matter is nothing worth celebrating.

"Plunder" can be heard in the upcoming documentary by the same name, directed by Danny Schechter. Nicknamed "The News Dissector", Emmy Award winning Schechter investigates the economic downturn and subprime mortgage crisis. Polarity/1 contributes two songs to the film, and even makes a brief cameo appearance. Watch the teaser trailer for Danny Schechter's 'Plunder' documentary.

The music of Polarity/1 is exactly what the name suggests: conjoined opposites -- a mash up of new: cutting edge electronica/hip hop/nu-jazz and old; roots music of America (blues, funk, country, early jazz), Brazil (samba, pagoda, etc.) and West African groove science. Polarity also describes the dual streams of Polarity/1's musical output: songs and instrumentals.
