“I made this mix one morning last week while enjoying some coffee and oatmeal at my kitchen table. Some of these tracks bang, others are more chill, but I’ve been loving them all these past few weeks. I decided to start and end the mix with Joe Gibbs songs because I’ve been obsessively listening to his ‘Dub Serial’ record in these dying days of summer. I hope you enjoy it.”

Perhaps you’re familiar with @SeinfeldToday, the 700,000-followers-strong Twitter account that imagines what the plots of Seinfeld episodes set today might look like, or @Seinfeld2000, a surrealist parody of @SeinfeldToday known for its intentional misspellings and grammatical errors…Jason Richards, the man behind @Seinfeld2000, even created a companion video called Seinquest2000 and published an ebook called The Apple Store imagining what “Jery,” “Elane,” “Gerge,” and “Krame” would be up to 15 years after the series finale. And as The New York Times reports, Richards has also partnered with New Zealand video game designer Pippin Barr to create The Junior Mint, a game based on the 1993 Seinfeld episode of the same name. The goal is to drop as many Junior Mints as possible into the surgery patient below, which is genius. The game’s soundtrack is a looped a cappella version of the Seinfeld theme by Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig that’s as goofy and fun as the concept.
The Moon Song (Studio Version Duet) - Karen O featuring Ezra Koenig
In this new rendition of “The Moon Song,” Karen O is joined by Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig. “I wrote the song as a duet,” Karen O explained. “I was really excited at the prospect of getting to record it with a male vocalist. Ezra was super cool and open, he slipped into character like a champ and damn he’s got the goods.”
A special three-song EP of “The Moon Song” arrives this week on iTunes.
