Dr. Leisure & Tim Fite - I Smoke, You Cough
I know Fair Ain't Fair just came out a couple months ago, so you'd be OK to not be expecting anything new from Tim Fite for a while. Well, on his current tour with The Watson Twins, he's selling what looks like a self released CD (not CD-R, strangely enough). It's called Just For You and is a collaboration with Dr. Leisure who is actually billed first (and who recently changed his name to Fisticuffs).
Take all of the weird humor found throughout Fite's work, multiply it by 10, and turn it into some weird sampling sound experiment. That's kind of how Just For You sounds. Very, very weird. There's some spoken word type stuff, a lot of loops, samples from various films and songs, it's just very chaotic and it doesn't make a lot of sense. But, if you you're a fan of the bizarre, then chances are you'll like this. It reminds me of Miranda July's early records on Kill Rock Stars. It's pretty much Tim and Greg having a good time making very different music than they normally do. I don't know if they're selling it anywhere other than on tour right now, so if you want it, you'll have to go see them live. Which isn't such a bad thing, I promise.
