A neat thing about kids is that their reactions are genuine. Even when they fake enthusiasm, there's always that split second right before they go into an "act" when you can, y'know, just tell they aren't into something.
Happily, that wasn't the case when the preview copy of Justin Roberts' new CD, LEMONADE, arrived a few weeks ago (review pending). In the meantime, here's the video that accompanies the title track. It provides a glimpse into the acoustic nature (a throwback to his earlier recordings) of the CD. And you can pre-order LEMONADE from Amazon.
KB Whirly and Mista Cookie Jar team up for the sunny new autumn single, LOVE LIGHT SHINE (produced by Josh and the Jamtones' Patrick Hanlin). I heard a little Sly and the Family Stone, I sensed some Michael Franti, I tapped my toes and swayed gently in place.
They are calling LOVE LIGHT SHINE a very important public service announcement. And with everyone putting out their Halloween decorations, we could all use something upbeat that doesn't feature scary clowns.
