A musician who has played with TV on the Radio, Sufjan Stevens, Spoon, Miike Snow, Pretty Lights, and others, Smoota sings sexy, groovy songs with a rare combination of sincerity, eroticism, and humor. Based in New York City, Smoota released his debut album, Fetishes, in October on Body To Body Records. Inspired by the soundscape of Sly Stone’s There’s A Riot Going On, the wordplay of George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic, and the honest, confessional treatment of sex and male-female relations found in his favorite movies and books, Smoota emerged with an intimate concept album unabashedly exploring the rich landscape and dark underbelly of male sexuality. Songs explore sexual fantasy, joyful infidelity, the power of suggestion, bodily functions, violence as aphrodisiac, bedroom mishaps, rock n’ roll lust, the erotics of race, and the infinite variety of personal fetishes.
