“Banana Backwoods is exotic – you want the smoke? / Banana clip hanging, no jamming it from the nose” – from its opening lyric, “Banana Backwoods” starts swinging from out the gate.
Leaked to radio earlier this summer, SpaceLAB Recordings presents the visuals to “Banana Backwoods”, the 2nd single off the upcoming 10-song collaborative LP Dying In Designer.
The gritty beat merges hard drums with warped 1960’s psychedelic guitars, & once again unites the gritty Upper West Side emcee Westside Ward with his longtime collaborator – Tennessee-by-way-of-Brooklyn producer Jake Palumbo. Named after the initially difficult-to-find flavor of cigar, the song comes across much like its namesake – slow-burning & intense, like rolling an entire eighth in a Backwoods.
Westside Ward & Jake Palumbo’s Dying In Designer LP is scheduled for a November release on SpaceLAB Recordings / Soulspazm Records.
