Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Jennifer O'Connor is releasing her first album since leaving Matador Records back in 2009. On November 8th, O'Connor will digitally release I Want What You Want on her own Kiam Records. Though she left Matador unsure if she'd continue making music, she says her return to the studio ushered in feelings of perseverance, accepting, and starting over, which are major themes on I Want What You Want.

O'Connor blends the negative feelings that can inspire someone to move on with her soothing vocals and strong guitar solos on her new track "Already Gone." "This was the first song I wrote for the record. I was feeling let down by someone I really looked up to, but also kind of angry," she explains. "On a positive note, I'm quite proud of the guitar solo I played on this recording, on a very nice, borrowed Jazzmaster."

Jennifer O'Connor's I Want What You Want will be released on November 8th, but you can download "Already Gone" for free here.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
