New World Angst: Culcha Candela and "Schöne Neue Welt"

From a Berlin dancehall, hip hop and reggae band comes our random tune for today. Culcha Candela was formed in 2002 and their songs tend to be of two types - party songs and those that tackle political issues such as today's song, Schöne Neue Welt. The song can be found on Culcha Candela's 2009 album Schöne Neue Welt, and has satirical lyrics about our culture of consumption, stating in the refrain "Welcome, welcome to our beautiful new world. What will be tomorrow is of no importance. We will celebrate until everything falls to pieces."
