A mystical creature of leisure, the Smooth Big Cat likes to stay up late drinking whiskey with his rascally mates listening to records. He doesn't have stakes in the troubles of the world, and his life is guided by the mood of the breeze & what's there in front of him. When you're feeling lost or a shade of blue, you can look to the Smooth Big Cat, and he'll point you down the road you want to travel. Just as in his uncertain times, Angus looks to the Smooth Big Cat for guidance in the cheeky world he walks in. The Smooth Big Cat in Angus' mind is the chairman of the board if you fancy.
Recorded over three months at Belafonte, the studio on his ranch, Smooth Big Cat is Dope Lemon (Angus Stone) squeezed to pure juice, distilled to a nectar fit for the gods, sweet on everyone's lips. It is Angus' real world-blue moon music, songs for when the eve is about to turn into something special. A record for wild hearted escapades and fuzzy, melty moments laying back on the rug.
It's been two years since Hounds Tooth, the last Dope Lemon EP, and a full three since Honey Bones, Angus' instant-classic debut, which amassed over 100 million streams. The release saw Dope Lemon become not just a melting curio of artistic experimentation, but a fully-fledged cultural phenomenon.
