Yawn and stretch

Sherman Jr. finally woke up, but only because he heard the news that one of THE best online music stores is going digital! Yes, Soul Seduction will go digital as of next Monday, December 5th!!! They will continue to be a vinyl and cd store, but have decided to step up and bring their great selection to the masses! I am thrilled! They have turned me onto so many great releases. They gave me Parov Stelar who as you know is the current nearest and dearest to my heart. This is incredible news! Great music to go straight to Sherman Jr. I love it!


Is it me or is the new Tristeza album (yes I said album and probably will from time to time) a trip back in time? A Colores sounds a bit like the 60's and 70's smashed up to me. It's a bit psychedelic and very space rock oriented. The first track, Bromas is a bit too anthemic for me, but the extended mix of this track on the single release is fantastic. The rest of this disc is pure instrumental bliss. This is their first release in 3 years and the first without Jimmy Lavelle. Jimmy left to start Album Leaf and I am so grateful he did. We will talk about that project another time!! For sure! The past releases from Tristeza were rather ambient, while this release seems to turn things up a bit. A Colores was written in Mexico and the influence is definitely heard on this. It was then recorded in Michigan. Pick this one up, turn it on after a night out and enjoy!

Next I would like to draw your attention to a series of animated shorts that I have grown to love. They are the Valley of the Cnuties. The cnuties were created by Craig Robinson who is also the creator of Flip Flop Flyin one of the finest sites on the internet. You may know his mini pops from some Yahoo!Music commercials that aired in the states. The cnuties are short episodic animations created to represent different decades and the musical accompaniment is from said era. Personally, I just love 'em and can't get enough of 'em!!!

I always feel like when it's time to do the Guilty Pleasure of the day, there should be a drum roll of some kind. So there it is. Today I bring you one of mine and Sherman Jr's all time favorite love songs, Biggest Part of Me by soft rock officiandos Ambrosia. Believe it or not, they were discovered by LA Philharmonic Conductor Zubin Mehta. After that, it took 4 years to get a record deal. Once they did, the late 70's/early 80's was their time in the sun. Biggest Part of Me was #3 in 1980. With romantic lyrics such as these...
Well, make a wish baby
Well and I will make it come true
Make a list baby
Of the things I'll do for you
Ain't no risk now
In lettin' my love rain down on you
So we can wash away the past
So that we may start anew


how could it not be a hit??? Ambrosia is not just a holiday salad, but a serious group that created some awesome makeout music.
