GTC DEEP CUTS: SNAILMATE Cold Turkey
by Walter Price
I’ve not hidden my love for the dynamic duo that is Smailmate very well and in this truncated review of one of their might-have-been-missed tracks, the heart bubbles only intensify, if you will.
From their blazing 2017 LP ‘Love in the Microwave’ I offer up a chance for you to (re)connect to the track “Cold Turkey”. Why? Because, over the years it’s offered up not only one of my fave go-to phrases but has soundtracked many road trips— at hefty volume, mind you. The line goes, “relax mother fucker relapse”, and how this isn’t pouring from every MF-ers lips in time of need is a mystery, but alas, it’s only a sliver of wordsmithery this Beck/Bran Van 3000-esque hyper track has to offer.
Look, have a listen for yourself, and (re)discover an almost recent hidden gem, here at the GTC.
