The SMOKE AND GET HIGH (EP) was released on FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 2014 and includes the songs: “Smoke and Get High,” “Big Daddy (Big Mommy),” “West Coast Vibe,” and “Here Anyway.”
Opening the EP is the title track, “Smoke and Get High,” where Sitting Dove embarks on a cheeky, battle-drum lament of his grueling first three years of making music, the state of global affairs, and his longing to rendezvous with his ‘little lady.’ In “Big Daddy (Big Mommy),” Sitting Dove recreates his 'big Hip Hop ballad' to the Federal Reserve Bank, flowing an ‘epic historical perspective’ of the central bank's history and accompanying global corporate takeover. One could also consider “Big Daddy (Big Mommy)” to be both a fond farewell to the outgoing Federal Reserve chair, Ben Bernanke, and a warm welcome to the incoming Federal Reserve chair, Janet Yellen. Drifting into the smooth and dreamy “West Coast Vibe,” Sitting Dove combines the personal with the political and the old school with the New World in laying out a fresh and expanded take on the proverbial West Coast Vibe. The parting statement of this release comes with “Here Anyway,” an eerie, stripped-down reflection that creeps into other realms. The SMOKE AND GET HIGH (EP) provides a sonic peek into where Sitting Dove has been and where he plans to go. NOW AVAILABLE!
The Rap (Hip Hop) act known as Sitting Dove was formed October 2010 at a recording studio in Santa Monica, California. The concept of Sitting Dove, however, had been incubating for years. One afternoon in the fall of 2007, a lone dove landed on the apartment stoop of another chewed-up and spit-out Hollywood wannabe. For some reason—possibly the California smog—this wannabe thought that the dove wanted its picture taken. So he grabbed his camera and took pictures for about twenty minutes as the dove “seemed to pose” for him. The above image from that fateful day struck him deeply and eventually inspired him to create the Rap act called Sitting Dove. Operating out of proverbial HOLLYWOOD, Sitting Dove plans to send his distorted sonic waves worldwide as long as he’s compelled (and/or allowed) to do so...
