Trip Hop’s Tim Love Lee New Single “HOBO HULA” & New Album

“You want me to spank myself? No, I want you to spank ME.” – These were the words that captured the twisted imaginations of a certain type of DJ back in 1994 when Tim Love Lee released the debut single on his fledgling record label, Peace Feast. For the next ten years Lee released a steady stream of sample based urban exotica. Doped up, blissed-out or living on the margins of the acceptable, it all found a loving home in his aural universe.

Cecilia Castleman Shares “You Go Thru Girls Like You Go Thru Cigarettes”

As the title suggests, the song centers around the theoretical but relatable archetype of a man that rotates his dates as quickly as he pulls out another cigarette. She explains,

“‘You Go Thru Girls Like You Go Thru Cigarettes’ is a metaphor about relationships. A pack-a-day kind of a guy…smokes a lot — one cigarette for as many girls as he has dated, but relationships are not something you can just snub out in an ashtray.

The song is also home to one of my favorite lines I’ve ever written – ‘There’s no cure for being young.’ No matter how much you try to do the right thing, it’s inevitable that you’re going to mess up, especially when you’re young and a pack-a-day kind of guy comes around.”
