Twerk Thomson came in to promote Twerk Thomson Plays Unpopular Songs at WWOZ earlier this year. Unpopular Songs is a different type of traditional jazz album. Instead of polished and pristine, the cuts are gritty and accompanied by the pops and hisses that give vinyl recordings their character and charm. The project came into existence after Thomson acquired a Presto K8 lathe from the 1930s, restored it, and used it as a launching point for his new label.
