Mike Skinner, who performs under the name The Streets, recently stopped by XFM London’s Leicester Square studios to perform a live session and to chat with DJ Steve Harris. Skinner’s last album under The Streets’ moniker, which is titled Computers and Blues, was released on February 7th in the UK. (It is available as an import in the United States.)
Skinner did four songs in the session—“OMG,” “Blinded By The Lights,” “Dry Your Eyes,” and “Going Through Hell.” The session can be heard by going to http://www.xfm.co.uk/onair/sessions/xfm-session-the-streets and then clicking the individual audio links.
