Smooth Tendencies is Microkingdom’s second full length on Friends Records. A beautiful monster built over three years in a basement in Northeast Baltimore.

Double smooth ramps. Tending toward the yacht. Luxurious hair in the breeze. It’s not an avant garde smooth jazz album but there is reverb on the sax and gold on the guitar. The shirt is open and the chest hair flows in the drums. Keyboards of all kinds. It’s hot in the streets and a breeze on the beach.

Available on pink vinyl with velvet jacket from Friends Records
