smoov shimmy’s picks o’ the week: teebs, heavy winged and lilys

i love/luv/LOOOVE  me some internet backtalk, especially when people are shitting on my writing/journalistic style as “lazy” or “vague” or “pukey.” well, sheeple are entitled to their opinions and, sadly, to get their hate on; but i maintain that i will do only these things: not bullshit you, not sell anything ever or get creepy and sell n’ pander, and lastly: always, always give my opinion. leave everything else to the fucking hipsters.

now: teebs’ ardour. this dude is fucking sick. his shit is like all the good things about late dub and instrumental hip hop and distilled down to the sleepy, focus/out-of-focus sunny moments of the bestest of times. mmmmmm, sunny.

next up: heavy winged-sunspotted. sweet mother of pearl, how many fucking records do you have to drop before peeps catch on/up? this is their latest of perhaps a million, and a fucking brand new MONSTER. noisy and lovely, crunchy and oh so tri-zippy trippy. much better than mogwai. (and that’s fucking good.) do yourself a favor.

lastly, but no way leastly: the lilys. sure this is one of those bands from waaay back in the 90’s (cough) but they is le bomb. a wiser man than me said that they sound like “all the best bands from the 60’s, playing at the same time...” i say,  an argument for drugs and dancing. dig it.

kinks. beatles. zombies. and a whole shite load more smeared with a goodly amount of my bloody valentine. start with this one: better can’t make your life better and add from there.
