Tex Williams - Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! (That Cigarette) 1947 "Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! (That Cigarette)" is a Western swing novelty song written by Merle Travis.

White Williams is the music project of Cleveland-/New York based musician Joe Williams. He released one album and EP under this name before using the Motion Graphics moniker. In August 2016 the self-titled album was released through Domino Records.

White Williams' music has drawn comparisons to contemporaries from Beck to Vampire Weekend, but the inclusive playfulness of Brian Eno's early solo albums feels like a more relevant touchstone for this album's friendly experimentalism - like Eno, Williams combines the really weird and the really poppy so that they complement each other instead of competing with each other. It's Smoke's nonstop catchiness that makes it really special, however. Though "Lice in the Rainbow" closes the album with a burst of streaky and insectoid synths, even this tangent hovers around the length of a classic pop song. Meanwhile, "Route to Palm" and "Fleetwood Crack" have winsome melodies that feel strangely familiar, and make the sexily aloof cover of "I Want Candy" blend in even more seamlessly with the rest of Smoke.

Smoke's palette of sounds is pretty remarkable, with guitars that shimmy, bounce, and buzz colliding with oddly childlike backing vocals and synths that sparkle and crackle. Everything sounds like it's been slicked in oil or wrapped in spandex, to the point where "Going Down"'s paranoid pop feels as though it could slip right off the album. It's Smoke's nonstop catchiness that makes it really special, however

Besides, it’s hard to fault him too much for having the good sense to have chosen these artists to emulate. Until he graduates to that place of maturity, his debut remains bittersweet, split between promising songwriting mimicry and impressive smoke-and-mirrors tricks as a producer.
