Slightly Stoopid is a name we’ve all known for quite awhile: 17 years to be precise. For nearly 2 decades they have been carrying the torch, lit by their predecessors and mentors, Sublime, lighting the way for all of us weed-smoking, beer-drinking, SoCal-loving, beach-going, jam band-craving, reggae-seeking, rock-starving listeners. On their most recent studio effort, Top of The World, they deliver the genre-bending goodness we’ve come to expect from them, with a small dose of political consciousness. The 21-track album on their own label, Stoopid Records, features a handful of celebrity contributors and collaborators, which highlight the amount of respect this band has garnered from their peers of reggae, rock, & hip hop.

I love my job. Not many people can say that. Why do I love it, you ask? I do nothing but listen to Earbits all day, which provides me some serious time to peruse the up and coming music that we are constantly adding. From Metal to Jazz, and everything in between, I am ever-impressed by the catalog that our music department is building. Frankly, it’s getting ridiculous.

What does this mean to you?

Nasty grooves. Insane harmonies. Ridiculously catchy songs.

These are all things that you can count on from Wooster. And, tomorrow, Thursday, August 2 at 8 pm PDT, you can ask them where in the hell all of that funky goodness comes from!

Tell us about your band.

I tend to keep my mouth shut when it comes to electronic dance music, particularly dubstep.  My history with that particular subgenre is somewhat similar to many other people my age:  I heard a song, thought it was one of the coolest and most different sounding things I’ve ever heard, listened to a few other songs that gave me a similar response, listened to more songs until the build-up-then-bass-wobble formula wore thin, and then left the music for people who consider staying out all night and dancing to crazy light-shows a good time.  Not my scene.
