addicted-2-booombap a continued supporter of Tim . everything he does is original and quality . the psych live instrumentals are the perfect back drop for Tim's quirky and goofy but, often eerie delivery and mesh perfectly with his sci fye , horror flick story tell in . over the years Tim has crafted a knack for real catchy pop hooks with a sick demented twist and he has a ton of those killer hooks here ! o ya btw , the cover art is amazing , come on ! Favorite track: Show & Tell.

about

Born out of a passionate, lifelong love of music, Tongue Helmet initially started as a collaboration between two longtime friends, Timbuktu (Swamp Thing) and Danny Miles (July Talk). Now joined by familiar powerhouse talent Coins / Peter Project and DJiRATE, the group is complete. A long-simmering creative dream for over a decade, this project combines the talents and experience of veteran musicians from seemingly distinct genres, bringing together surprisingly compatible sounds. Tongue Helmet’s debut thirteen track LP titled "Psychotropic Ape", is co-Produced by Timbuktu and Danny Miles, and is a collaborative work in its purest inspirational form.

“Psychotropic Ape is the full band realizing our identity. Whereas the Brain On Fire EP was just two people with some help from friends, this is the album where the band came into fruition. Psychotropic Ape is a powerful journey through our four minds on a creative soundscape. The music sounds like vintage samples, but it is fully a band making old school sounds in a new school world. It will give you instant feelings of nostalgia”. - Danny Miles

The project offers a unique and updated take on classic psychedelic hip-hop. Fans of Deltron 3030, Beastie Boys (think Paul’s Boutique) or Beck (Odelay era), will find themselves vibing to Tongue Helmet. Psychotropic Ape will be released via URBNET digitally on July 19th, and on CD and limited edition yellow vinyl LP on July 26th.
