(I'm A) Don Juan By The Embarrassment

So I'm like twenty so odd years late getting into The Embarrassment, but take a listen to the song below. They were way (way) ahead of their time. If I were to write that they were the latest band from say Brooklyn or Philly, would you really question such a statement? I just want to thank the dude/dudette... person that wrote the last.fm description for Oxford Collapse which is where I first remember reading about them. Speaking of Oxford Collapse, have you check out their Daytrotter session? But wait back to The Embarrassment...

Downloadable: "(I'm A) Don Juan" (box.net mp3)
