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 […]

the golden palominos: very shim approved

these albums are like the soundtrack to the greatest movie never made: smoky, street level intellectualism and with much consequence. it’s the way spoken word should be, or maybe even a gripping audio book with all the grimey sex and death and twisted turns intact. did i mention the the cast? helmed by the formidable […]

twas a dark and doomy night: TKDE and TMFDC

mmmmm drones and jazz. dusty, decaying and the kind of shit that if listening to walking home late one night would probably cause you to check over your shoulder a few too many times. to label this cinematic would be missing a great deal. the kilimanjaro darkjazz ensemble (TKDE aka) is pretty much the musical […]
