BOBBLE TIKI: SLUGABED, TWO SHOWS, MAHJONGG >>>

THE DAILY WORD

Slugabed \SLUHG-uh-bed\, noun:
One who stays in bed until a late hour; a sluggard.

USAGE EXAMPLE: Weekly Volcano Music Columnist Matt Driscoll may, perhaps, be the most dedicated slugabed Bobble Tiki has ever met. Somehow, through marriage and the birth of his first child, Driscoll has managed to sleep into a.m.’s double digits seventy-five percent of the time. While many people disapprove of Driscoll’s late sleeping ways (just apparently not his wife), Bobble Tiki admires his perseverance. Most people would grow up and stop being lazy. Not Driscoll. He’s a fighter.

THREATS AND PROMISES COLUMN
When Bobble Tiki listened to Mahjongg, who released Kontab on Feb. 22, their latest record and first on K, he felt like he had a grasp on where these guys were coming from. Their influences are across the board, delving into afro beat as much as electronica and distortion, but their songs remain digestible and almost catchy at times. Bobble Tiki felt like he’d found a band in Mahjongg (named after an ancient Chinese game of strategy and luck) that he understood. Bobble Tiki knew they were arty, but he didn’t feel alienated

Breakfast with Bobble Tiki runs six days a week now. Deal with it.
