Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Positive vibes are super contagious.

Hip-hop Hype duo, The New F-O's know this and feed off of it.

Earlier this month we talked about the local band's rap/rock sound, and this week you can see just how the group gets down, with live MCing mixed with live drums and instrumentation.

MC's Lifted and Poncho get bilingual in "Mira, Mira!" while fellow rapper Hannibal Leq lends his vocals on the party jam "Show Me."

The guys discuss these songs in our exclusive videos, as well as delve into their definition of Hype Music.

Follow the jump to learn what "feel-goody music" sounds like.

"Mira, Mira"

"Show Me"

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
