Listen to Javelin's Unreleased Booty-Bouncer, "The Marimba Song"
We know next to nothing about how to booty-bounce, twerk, ass-clap, or perform any other type of advanced derriere dance moves, and never before has this shortcoming been more achingly debilitating than when we heard this new track from Javelin for the first time.
Sounding like it was ripped straight from the backyard afterhours party of a Tijuana nightclub (Does TJ have "afterhours" or is that just called "hours?"), "The Marimba Song" has only ever existed in a live form before now. Mercifully, the weirdo-pop duo have finally graced us with a recorded version, so we can twerk it out in the privacy of our open air office. Listen to the track below, grab Javelin's latest full-length, Hi Beams, and clap it up IRL at one of their upcoming tour dates.
