iTunes Editors’ Notes

As a founding member of California’s Quannum Projects (previously known as Solesides), Tom Shimura has already established his indie-rap bona fides. Yet, with his distinctive nasal rasp, slippery flow, and irresistible dance rhythms, he’s always presented a pop-friendly veneer, especially for such an underground champion. Everywhere at Once, his debut for Anti, the stalwart indie label, could have been his career-defining masterwork, the album that exceeded and built on his considerable achievements. Instead, it’s simply another tight and tempting Lyrics Born project, filled to the gills with electro funk, disco, and contemporary soul grooves. Pulsing tracks like “Hott 2 Deff” (with Jurassic 5’s Chali 2na) and “Don’t Change” (boasting a punchy three-piece horn section) will no doubt get bodies moving, but things get even better when he moves out of his comfort zone on tracks like the grinding “I’m a Phreak,” the New Wave, Devo-inspired “Do U Buy It?” and the fantastically dynamic “I Can’t Decide,” all of which seem to owe a nod to Cee-lo Green and Gnarls Barkley. More comfortable than ever in the studio, Shimura’s production pops and sparkles, thanks to his strategic use of live musicians.

proof that love ruins everything

I've been a fan of LB and all things Quannum since latryx or before. Later That Day is and will always be one of my top 5 hip hop albums of all time... But this??? umm I dont really know what to say really. This is not hip hop, when your wife is singing on almost every song and every other song is about lovey dovey garbage and how happy you are- it becomes almost unclassifiable. R & B maybe??? Joyo Velarde is talented in her own right and I understand he was attempting to be experimental and all, but this has none of the grit and grind and beats that make hip hop what it is. Not even Chali 2na could save hott 2 deff, and that guy has a hip hop midas touch. If you want experimental listen to the sutff he did with Dj Shadow, Dj Format, Cut Chemist or listen to his old sutff. LB, I love your stuff man but stick to what you know and leave the 80's El De Barge sound where it belongs- In the past.

awesome

this album is just about perfect. "Differences", "Don't Change" and "Hott 2 Deff" are GREAT GREAT GREAT!!! The music, as always, is so different but goes perfectly with the lyrics. Lyrics Born is PHENOMENAL!!! YOU MUST BUY THIS ALBUM!!!

Better&Better

This is a funky little gem. There's not a bad track on it. Worth every penny!
