Adult Swim's Williams Street Records will release a garage-rock compilation on May 6th, aptly titled Garage Swim. The digital release will be available for free and features brand-new cuts from a slew of jangle-rock experts and fuzzed-out maestros like Jeff the Brotherhood, Bass Drum of Death, Mikal Cronin and King Tuff.

Now you can take an exclusive first listen to "Cruising," an open-road anthem from Atlanta's Black Lips that features a delightfully menacing guitar riff and a puttering verse that breaks into a joyous, pedal-to-the-metal sprint.

Song Stories

“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."
