Furry animals and Beth Orton?!

No, it's not what you think! Shame on you!! Sherman has finally taken the time away from the Concretes and Cat Power cd's to check out some other stuff today. He stumbled across a link to the new video for Beth Orton's "Conceived" single. The kind folks at Filter Magazine have made it available for our viewing pleasure. Not sure how long it will be there so be sure to check soon! Furry animals and adorable Beth? Can anyone's heart take that? It's sure to bring a smile to all of you so enjoy!

Sherman has never been one to be much of an activist, but where there is injustice, he wants to see good prevail over evil. A friend passed this info on to him and he is eager to draw attention to it (thanks eb). I hope you are all familiar with Johnny Cupcakes. Johnny is a designer of fabulous clothing and accessories that all have a cupcake somewhere in their design. Well, the not so kind folks at Urban (we donate to the republican party) Outfitters ripped him off! Click this link to see what you can do to help the cause.

Did we already tell you how much we love the new Concretes disc? Oh yeah, we did! Super yummy and it looks like Astralwerks will be putting it out on March 21st here in the US. Ok, so we will tell you to go to SuperFunFun and check out Doughnut Boy and Toast! New friends that Sherman would like you all to meet!

Today we would like you to visit an old friend and take out any old Massive Attack albums you may have. If you live somewhere that is having weather like we are, it is the perfect soundtrack for some grey skies and gloom. We recommend Protection from 1995. That way you get a dose of Ms. Tracy Thorn on vocals. PS. We miss you Tracy!!!!

BlackBook Magazine's current issue (with Usher on the cover) has a great article on Guilty Pleasures! Loving the fact that Richie Hawtin loves "Bootylicious"!!! Listen to this quote from Devendra Banhart: "There is so much strength and power to be gathered by playing a song you consider a “guilty pleasure” at audible volume, at least, in front of people you do and don’t know." We couldn't agree more!!!

Sherman has received a few requests from some local folks asking if he could share any show info etc. Here's a few tidbits for Seattle:

Free in-store Tuesday, Jan. 24th with Morningwood at Easy Street Queen Anne (the band du jour) / Tina Dico solo tour at Chop Suey on March 23rd / Jazzanova THIS Saturday at the Baltic Room / Matt Pond PA is coming to the Crocodile March 1st / Stars at Showbox on February 8th / Mylo at Chop Suey February 18th / Eat at La Carta de Oaxaca in Ballard (Sherman loves their tacos al pastor)
