Turbo Excelente Hits The Streets

It's been a long time coming but the new PALOOKA album, Turbo Excelente is here

The vinyl version will be available at select record stores in the Pacific Northwest and Worldwide, as well as directly online from CD Baby or Turbo Excelente will also be available on most digital outlets including iTunes and Spotify shortly after 11/18/17.

Turbo Excelente was recorded the legendary London Bridge Studio in Seattle, the birth place of albums such as Mother Love Bone - Apple, Soundgarden – Louder Than Love, Temple of the Dog – Temple of the Dog, Pearl Jam – Ten, Alice in Chains – Dirt and Jar of Flies. Turbo Excelente was recorded and mixed by Jonathan Plum (Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Blind Melon, Ann Wilson, Kim Virant, Candlebox, etc.) and Kelly Gray (Dokken, Candlebox, Brother Cane, Nevermore, etc.). The album also features performances by Seattle’s first lady of soul Grace Love, who just released an EP of her own titled HOLY (, Kathy Moore, (The Guessing Game, Crystal Beth and the Boom Boom Band and Thaddillac), Kim Virant of Lazy Susan and her own solo project, and Christopher Todd Davis ( who has performed and recorded from Seattle to Nashville and beyond.

Turbo Excelente is the product of writing and recording demos of almost 20 songs then choosing the 10 that came together to become the album we wanted to create. This album was a labor of love for all of us and we can’t wait to share it with the world.

Stay tuned for more album release and live show news, including the announcement of a Seattle record release show.

As always, thank you for your support.
