ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Slipshod Swingers were born from The Whopper Strategies, an unreleased novel by writer and artist, Pirooz Kalayeh. Now a group of live musicians, they hold to the simple ideals of community, musicianship, and living.

"Woes and Hail Mary's" - the debut release from Slipshod - is a collection of improvised love songs that intermingle 50's doo wap and hip hop sensibilities. It was recorded in Los Angeles straight to a small Lo-Fi recording system.

Slipshod's sophomore effort, Orange Lamborghini, is a sonic landscape of heavy backbeats, discovery, and socio-political ruminations. A mixture of professional and Lo-Fi recordings, it traces an evening drive in Los Angeles - down the 101 and onto Hollywood Boulevard.

Transistor Radio, the latest record from the Swingers, was recorded in Seoul, Korea. It definitely has elements of K-Pop and other Korean pop sensibilities, interlaced with a healthy dose of hip hop, punk, and classic rock. A record you can dance to or impress upon others, Transistor Radio will have you on speed dial to a great time.

Slipshod blog entries, interviews, and updates are available at Shikow. To visit the main website go to piroozkalayeh.com, where you can enjoy the latest animated shorts, comics, or free downloads!

everybody on the price is right
The Slipshod Swingers third album, "transistor radio," takes you on a glorious hot air balloon ride around the world. Don't be afraid of heights! Catchy hooks, hop-heavy beats, and abstract sounds are combined with a sophisticated pop sensibility that will have you listening time and time again. I dare you not to sing along to "Pay the Bills." And be sure to check out the fantastic imagery in the video for "Pops U."
