Mister G’s ‘Green World’ Gets The Gold

Courtesy: Coil Records

Children’s entertainer Mister G has made quite the name for himself throughout his career, turning out album after album of family-friendly music that successfully bridges cultural and musical boundaries  That success was continued late this month when the Latin Grammy® Award-winning musician released his latest album Mundo Verde/Green World.  The 11-song record, his eighth offering, is a success due in part to its overall theme.  That will be discussed shortly.  The variety presented throughout the record’s musical arrangements is just as important to discuss in examining the album’s presentation as its central theme.  The record’s sequencing rounds out its most important elements.  Each element is important in its own right to the album’s whole.  All things considered, they make Mundo Verde / Green World yet another successful offering from Mister G and potentially one of this year’s top new children’s albums.

Mister G’s eighth studio recording Mundo Verde / Green World is yet another successful offering from the veteran children’s entertainer. That is thanks in no small part to the album’s central theme, which promotes environmental awareness.  Right from the album’s outset, Mister G sings to his listeners, “We’ve got to protect this planet of ours…I want to live in a green world.”  That emphasis on environmental awareness continues throughout the rest of the album’s run, too, in various ways.  From a song about recycling (which is in fact simply titled ‘Recycling’) to a song promoting the huge importance of the tiny honey bee (yes, that song is called ‘Bee’) to the encouraging ‘Yes We Can’ and more, this record’s songs focus in their own way on that one central theme of caring for the planet.  Obvious, Mister G is not the first artist from any genre to focus on the plight of the planet.  But this album marks the first of his albums to focus so wholly on that one subject.  It is one more way in which he continues to keep his albums varied from one to the next—his previous albums have paid tribute to the Jewish people and culture, general education and on animals among other topics—making that central theme all the more important to the album, even if the theme is not uncommon to the music industry in whole.  It is only one of the elements that makes this record so enjoyable.  The album’s musical styles exhibit their own variety throughout its run.

The variety presented throughout Mister G’s latest album is so important because it shows just as much as the album’s theme, Mister G’s continued conscious effort to keep things fresh for his listeners.  ‘Agua’ takes the Latin sounds for which Mister G has come to be known throughout his career and crosses them with an arrangement that conjures thoughts of the Hawaiin-islands.  With the recent success of Disney’s Moana, some might even start getting images of the Polynesian islands of the Pacific in listening to this song’s arrangement.  ‘How Many Fish’ is yet another surprise as its musical arrangement lends itself easily to comparisons to certain works from John Mayer.  The easygoing arrangement presented in ‘Paws in the Air’ stands out in its own way with its easy comparison to works from Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson and other similar acts.  Even the more Latin-leaning arrangements featured in this record show their own identity from one another.  Considering the variety exhibited throughout the course of this record’s arrangements, it becomes clear why the record’s musical variety is so important to its overall presentation.  It still is not the last of the album’s most important elements.  The record’s sequencing rounds out its most important elements.

Mundo Verde / Green World’s sequencing is an important piece of the record’s whole because it is puts the finishing touch on the already solid foundation created through the record’s theme and musical variety.  The finishing touch in question is a continued energy from one song to the next, with the variations in that energy being just enough from one to the next to ensure listeners’ engagement.  The sequencing also involved variations, just slight enough, in the arrangements to ensure even more listeners’ engagement.  Keeping this in mind, the album’s sequencing proves to be just as critical to its overall presentation as its central theme and its musical variants.  When all three elements are joined, they make the album in whole yet another successful offering from Mister G and potentially one of this year’s top new children’s albums.

Mister G’s latest full-length studio album Mundo Verde / Green World is yet another successful offering from the veteran children’s entertainer.  It is also potentially one of the year’s top new children’s albums, as is evidenced in the focus of the album’s central theme and musical variations.  The album’s sequencing shows just as much focus.  Keeping that in mind, all three elements collectively make this album enjoyable from start to finish.  It is available now in stores and online.  More information on Mundo Verde / Green World is available online now along with all of Mister G’s latest news and more at:

POJ’s Latest LP Is Another Must Have For Diehard Funk Fans

Courtesy: Sugar Road Records

Late this past March, Brooklyn, NY-based funk outfit Pimps of Joytime released its latest full-length studio recording Third Wall Chronicles to the world.  The group’s fourth full-length studio recording, this 10-song 38-minute record is itself a joy that will break more walls than build them.  In a time when the world is suffering from so much strife and division, that is important to note.  The mix of the album’s musical arrangements and its equally uplifting lyrics can so easily break down those walls and unite people, showing in whole that this is easily one of the year’s top new albums.

Pimps of Joytime’s latest full-length studio recording Third Wall Chronicles is a powerful new effort from the group.  That is proven throughout the album thanks to its music and lyrics that can so easily break down walls and unite listeners.  The album’s upbeat opener ‘This Funk (Give Me A Hand)’ supports that statement right off the top.  The song’s musical arrangement is an infectious, upbeat composition laden with horns, keyboards, drums, bass and vocals that instantly implant themselves in listeners’ minds in the best way possible.  It instantly conjures thoughts of Parliament Funkadelic, Sly & The Family Stone, Kool & The Gang and so many others of that ilk.  It’s just one part of what makes this song so powerful.  Its fun, simple lyrical content does just as much to make it so powerful.  Front man Brian J and company sing in the song’s lead verse, “Somebody give me a hand with this fun/I’ve been holding it all day long/Walking around with it/Trying to find the right party for this song/Just gotta get fired up.”  The positive vibes keep flowing from here on through the rest of the song without letting up.  When those positive vibes are coupled with the song’s equally positive musical vibes, the end result is a song that is not only proof of TWC’s impressive presentation, but a solid start for the record, too.  It is just one of the songs that serves to show what makes TWC so enjoyable overall.  ‘Little Bit of Something,’ which comes midway through the record’s run, serves as another example of what makes this album so enjoyable.

‘Little Bit of Something’ is one of TWC’s most notable songs due both to its musical arrangement and its lyrical content.  Musically speaking, the song is a light, flowing composition that lends itself easily to comparisons to works from Jack Johnson, Bob Marley and other similar acts.  That is evident in the song’s guitar line and horns, which form the song’s musical foundation. Drummer John Staten’s timekeeping strengthens that foundation even more with his work behind the kit.  When all of this is joined with the rest of the song’s musical elements, the whole of those elements makes this work yet another composition that will put a smile on any listeners’ face.  The song’s lyrical content, which is just as laid back as its musical arrangement is just as certain to keep those smiles beaming.

Brian J sings here, “Before I let you slip away/There’s just oen more thing honey/That I’ve gotta say/I got a little bit of something/And a whole lot of nothing/A little of your love/Over whole lot of my suffering/So baby please/Can I get a bit of your tenderness/Baby that’s all I’m asking for.”  He goes on to sing, “It’s all I’m asking for.”  J goes on to sing in the song’s second verse of his feelings for the woman, trying to win her over.  What’s really interesting here is that in listening through the song’s lyrical content, this song is one of those songs that is centered on a broken relationship, yet it isn’t one of those oh-woe-is-me works.  It is a man pleading to that woman for her to come back, yet it is done in such a positive fashion.  It’s something to which so many people can relate; that person trying to win the other person back with sensitivity and romance.  When this is considered along with the song’s musical arrangement, it adds even more to the song’s interest and makes it that much more relatable and enjoyable.  Keeping that in mind, the song in whole is just one more example of what makes TWC another enjoyable offering from Pimps of Joytime.  ‘Mud’ shows just as much as ‘Little Bit of Something’ and ‘This Funk (Give Me A Hand) why TWC is such an enjoyable effort.

‘Mud’ is another example of what makes TWC stand out thanks to its musical and lyrical content, just as with the previously discussed songs.  Musically speaking, this song is just as infectious as those songs (and the album’s other offerings) because of the manner in which it mixes the group’s trademark funk sound with more bluesy and gospel-based sounds.  It stands out completely from the its counterparts, showing once more, the musical variety exhibited throughout the album’s 38-minute run time.  Lyrically speaking, it is yet another simple work, too.  Brian J sings in the song’s lead verse, “I’m doing alright/Despite the dark entities that are seeing me/Don’t need a doctor/Maybe a shaman…doing alright/Despite the static and degradation…I’m traveling through the muddy water/Muddy water.”  What this seems to hint at is the song’s subject saying he is working through so much negativity and not getting up.  The muddy water is a metaphor that is used along with the rest of the lyrics to present that seeming message.  The argument for that seeming message is made even stronger as he sings in the song’s second verse, “I’m doing alright/Despite the pretty deep and shady tactics….I’m still doing my damn thing/Travelling through the muddy water.”  If this is indeed the message that is being sent through the song, then it is a very positive one that, along with the song’s musical arrangement, is made even more positive and enjoyable to take in.  It’s a message that so many people need today and every day reminding listeners that while there’s plenty of muddy water to trudge through, it can be done.  Considering this, that positive musical and lyrical message shows clearly why this song is another important addition to TWC and most certainly not the last.

The keyboard-driven arrangement of ‘Everywhere I Go’ is an easy fit for any Top 40 Pop radio station, and lends itself just as easily to any number of re-mixes while its positive lyrical content adds just as much to its enjoyment.  ‘Jack Stackin’’ presents its own musical and lyrical enjoyment with its hip-hop-infused arrangement and its fun lyrical content.  ‘Play,’ with its pop sensibilities both musically and lyrically, is enjoyable in its own right as it throws back to the golden age of funk, even incorporating some disco influence, too.  Lyrically, it only presents positivity, too.  Keeping all of this in mind, it should be clear by now why Third Wall Chronicles is such an enjoyable new effort from Pimps of Joytime.  The record, from start to finish, tells plenty of fun musical and lyrical stories that easily break down walls and unite listeners in that fun.  Keeping that in mind, the whole of the album proves without a doubt that it is one of this year’s top new albums overall.  It is available now.  More information on third Wall Chronicles is available online now along with all of Pimps of Joytime’s latest news and more at:

Southern Rock/Country Artist Andrew Carter Impresses On His Self-Titled Debut LP

Courtesy: Dog Song Records

Singer/songwriter Andrew Carter is on the verge of becoming one of the next big names in the country/southern rock arena.  That is thanks to Carter’s latest studio recording, his new self-titled, eight-song EP.  Released via Dog Songs Records, this record gives southern rock and country fans plenty to appreciate both musically and lyrically—two of its most important elements.  The record’s sequencing rounds out its most important elements.  Each element is key in its own way to this record’s whole.  Collectively, they make Andrew Carter the first step in a potentially big career for Carter.

Andrew Carter’s self-titled debut recording is a solid start for this up-and-coming, Tennesee-based southern rock/country artist.  That is proven in part through the musical arrangements that serve as the record’s foundation.  From start to finish, the musical arrangements presented in this record conjure thoughts of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Black Crowes and even Hank Williams Sr. among so many other top name acts from the southern rock and country realms.  The album’s opener, ‘Tear This Motha’ Down’ even conjures thoughts of Shooter Jennings with its arrangement.  As if that is not interesting enough, the record’s second offering, ‘The Weekend’ conjures thoughts of Bob Dylan while the rest of the song lends itself musically to thoughts of more modern southern rock and country works.  The reference to Lynyrd Skynyrd applies to the album’s fourth song, ‘Six Thousand Miles.’  Instantly lends itself to comparisons to the aforementioned band’s megahit ‘Tuesday’s Gone.’  Considering this and the equally easy comparisons that can be made through the record’s other compositions, it can be said easily that the album’s musical arrangements do plenty to make this record enjoyable for any southern rock and country fan.  It is only one part of what makes Andrew Carter an enjoyable listen for those noted audiences.  The record’s lyrical themes are just as important to its presentation as its musical arrangements.

The lyrical themes presented throughout Andrew Carter’s debut recording are collectively an important part of the album’s whole because while maybe not as diverse as the musical influences, they are still interesting in their own right. Carter sings in the EP’s opener about a woman who clearly made quite a difference in his life (or that of the song’s subject).  ‘The Weekend’ is also about a woman, yet, it’s also about the joys of two people spending the weekend together; no stresses of work, just the two people.  It’s a fun, light song that is sure to put a smile on any listener’s face.  There is even a tribute to all things southern in the simply titled ‘My Favorite Thing (about the South)’ that is also a tribute (no surprise) to a woman.   ‘Ghost Of Me’ offers up a fun, light-hearted introspective on Carter’s life that will entertain listeners just as much lyrically as it will musically.  It’s just one more way in which the lyrical content presented in Andrew Carter proves to be so important It shows alongside the album’s other lyrical themes, Carter’s ability to be lyrically diverse without being overly so.  That being the case, it becomes clear why the lyrical themes presented in Carter’s debut album is so important to the album’s whole.  Even with its importance, it still is not the last of the album’s most important elements.  The album’s sequencing rounds out its most important elements.

Andrew Carter’s sequencing is important to discuss here because it determines the album’s ability to keep listeners engaged and entertained just as much as the album’s musical and lyrical content.  Obviously plenty of time and thought was put into making sure this record would keep listeners engaged and entertained, too.  From start to finish, the album’s energy never lets up too much.  Even in the case of the Tom Petty-esque ‘Same Old Song’ (which is one of the album’s slower songs and sounds eerily like Petty’s ‘Last Dance With Mary Jane’ musically speaking), the energy still maintains itself in its own way.  Simply put, the album’s energy never lets up or gets too much at one point or another at any one point throughout its run.  Keeping this in mind, the album’s sequencing definitely ensures just as much its musical and lyrical content, listeners’ engagement and entertainment.  When all three elements are joined together, they make the album in whole a solid start for Andrew Carter, giving hope for a long career to come.

Andrew Carter’s self-titled debut album is a solid start for the southern rock/country musician. It is a record that gives hope for the future of his career thanks not only to its musical arrangements but also its lyrical content and its sequencing.  Each element plays its own critical part to the whole of the album.  All things considered, they make Andrew Carter a record that is sure to make his name very well-known very soon.  It is available now.  More information on Carter’s debut album is available online now along with all of his latest news and more at:
