“Music for the sensually inclined.” – Buzzbands LA
“Hyper-sexed sensual alt-soul grooves.” – Time Out NY
“How the libido sounds.” – The San Diego Reader
“If you’re ever feeling down about anything at all, we would recommend listening to music by Smoota. The lyrics to his songs will make you think, love, and smile before its end.” – Grungecake
“Combines the slinky DIY funk grooves of Shuggie Otis with the offbeat, trippy, psychedelic stoner charm of James Pants, all topped off with a sly pervy streak that winks toward Serge Gainsbourg and the P-Funk mob.” – Other Music
Smoota’s new album PHEROMONES is an arousing soak in the hot tub of your sexual imagination. Inspired by the warm and sensual sounds of 70’s soul, Smoota’s follow-up to his 2013 debut FETISHES is a risqué exploration of the modern sexual landscape. A New York City musician who has worked with TV On The Radio, Run The Jewels, Sufjan Stevens, Steven Tyler, Aaron Neville, and many others, Smoota performed all the music on Pheromones himself, adding only backup vocals, strings, and a (fake?) orgasm from a friend in Australia. With a unique mix of honesty, curiosity, and sly humor, the album puts both a dip in your hip and a smile on your face. Touching on the polyamorous urge, happy S&M relationships, taboo lust, erotic intimacy, and more, Pheromones will turn out the lights, liberate your mind, arouse your body, and then make you breakfast in the morning.
