One week from today....

One week from today is that date that so many dread while others embrace. If you are lucky enough to be madly in love (and with someone who gives good presents), you probably love Valentine's Day. If not, the loathing has already begun. Fret not, the ever adorable Questlove is giving the brokenhearted a little somethin' somethin' this year. Babies Making Babies Vol. 2 The Misery Strikes is a compilation of some of the most timeless break up music of the 70's. This is musical heartache at it's best. Who better to tell you how it really is than Al Green, Ohio Players, Stevie Wonder, Bobby Womack and Albert King?? Smooth, soulful and downright gutwrenching. This one actually makes you wonder why we fall in love to begin with. Sherman's head has been in his pillow since hearing Natalie Cole's "Good Morning Heartache".

We were a day late on this one, but Cat Power has cancelled her entire spring tour. Bummer. Matador has issued a statement that the cancellation is due to "health reasons". The tour will be rescheduled ASAP. Hope she's ok. Not going to make any other comments on this one.

Another item that Sherman just discovered is the Directions video series from Death Cab For Cutie. Launched on Jan. 27th, this is a series of short films that have been produced for the album Plans. Each Monday you can see a new film that will remain on the site until the following week. They are fantastic! Be sure to watch the two minute short about the development of the concept. Couldn't love those boys anymore if I tried. They are also the featured artist this week on Austin City Limits. Their gig with My Morning Jacket will air this Saturday, Feb. 11th.

Thievery Corporation fans have something to look forward to with the upcoming April release of Versions (on their own ESL label). These guys are truly in demand and have been asked to remix everyone from Transglobal Underground to Herb Alpert. They will be releasing well over a dozen of these remixes for all to enjoy. The one I am most curious about is the Doors' "Strange Days". They are also working on the follow-up to The Cosmic Game, which is their most successful album to date. These two have gotten pretty darn commercial, but Sherman still has a soft spot for some of the early stuff.

Hey fans of OM Records! In just two weeks, OM will release their 10th anniversary compilation. OM 10: A Decade of Future Music is burstin' at the seams with classic Om alongside new and never before released tracks. It sounds fantastic! This is one you will listen to over and over again. The track selection is masterful as they have chosen the perfect mix of all they do best (Kaskade, Fred Everything, Greenskeepers, Marques Wyatt, Rithma, Afro-Mystik, etc). It's got your house, downtempo, their own brand of hip hop and enough soul to keep you goin' for hours. Grab this one as soon as it drops! Thanks OM for 10 years of musical gifts and unbounded talent! Can't wait to hear the next decade! Look for 10 year celebrations all over the place this spring.

Sherman wants to share a great site for you creative types. Enjoy DFILM. Create your own animated film for friends!!!! So much fun! Feel free to share yours with Sherman, if you dare. Just send it to shermanscorner@comcast.net!!!

They just added MASSIVE ATTACK to Coachella's lineup! Ok, now we're talkin'!!!!

Oh yeah, tomorrow is "music's biggest night"! The Grammy's are back to honor records that none of us listen to and to never mention the ones we love! Sherman will be at the Elected/Stars show and will Tivo the event just in case Madonna ROCKS!!

Over and out! NO need to explain the photo below. Just enjoy!
