KB & The Idyllwilde is giving audiences another preview of its new EP I Just Wanna Love YouI Just Wanna Let You.

The group debuted the video for the EP’s latest single ‘Drown‘ Jan. 16.  The song’s gritty musical arrangement couples with front woman Katie Burke’s vocals to instantly conjure thoughts of the late great Janis Joplin and some of her greatest works.

Burke discussed the song in a recent interview.

“I think the line, “I’ll be the wounded bird and you can be the lion…depends on who wants to be the boss’ is my favorite line in the song,” she said.  “It really sums up a big theme of the album, too — that anyone can get what they want in big-bad-hard love, some of us want love, some of us want power, and some of us want to give it away.”

‘Drown’ is the second single from I Just Wanna Love YouI Just Wanna Let You.  The record’s lead single ‘Mad Man‘ debuted Nov. 21.  ‘Drown’ is available to stream and download now through Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and Google Play.

“‘Soul Sister Retribution’ is the song that changed my writing forever,” she said.  “I used to labor over pop sensibility, but with this one, I decided to leave my heart directly on the paper. An outspoken stream of consciousness, it’s the sole reason for the stylistic evolution in my artistry and music.  I wanted to be poetically liberated, to say things that have meaning, that run deep and are meant to inspire, empower and move; reflecting on a time in history, but igniting hope that love and strength can heal and unite.  It’s a conversation with young me, written for an older me about all my girls who may need to hear it.”

Family music entertainers Koo Koo Kangaroo debuted the video for their latest single this week.

The duo debuted the video for its song ‘My Jam‘ Friday.  The video’s debut comes two weeks after the pair debuted the single in its audio-only form.  The video features the duo dancing alongside the Harlem Globetrotters to the song, and even taking some shots at the basket along the way.

Globetrotters player Hammer Harrison offered praise for the song in a recent interview.

“We’re big fans of the work Koo Koo Kangaroo does to help kids be active,” he said.  “We hope that when kids and families hear the song, and watch the video, they are inspired to get up and get moving.”

Along with getting played at the Harlem Globetrotters’ games, ‘My Jam’ has also been getting spins at WXPN Kids’ Corner Radio in Philadelphia, PA.  WXPN will host its annual Kindiecomm family music conference in April.  Koo Koo Kangaroo is scheduled to take part in the conference.

‘My Jam’ is just the latest single to be released by Koo Koo Kangaroo.  The duo also recently debuted the singles ‘Hot Sauce‘ and ‘Glitter.’  ‘Hot Sauce’ is lyrically, a song about…well…hot sauce, the food.  The song’s musical arrangement throws back to the old school r&b sounds of Michael Jackson.

‘Glitter’ is just about glitter that is used in decorating.  Its musical arrangement presents a more straight forward club/electronic sound.

All three songs are streaming now through Koo koo Kangaroo’s official Spotify channel. Audiences can hear those songs and others are the duo wraps up its current live schedule.  The guys are scheduled to perform live Jan. 29 in Fresno, CA, Jan. 39 in Anaheim, CA and Jan. 31 in Camarillo, CA.

The album is scheduled for release Feb. 14 through 22Lives Records. In anticipation of the album’s release, the band debuted the video for the album’s lead single this week.

Front man Darius Lohmuller talked about the song’e lyrical theme in a recent interview.

“Mental health has always been an important topic for us and as a band in the last few years,” he said.  “With ‘Never Perfect,’ we decided to explicitly talk about the numerous situations we have come across, where either we ourselves, befriended bands or people we are in contact with working in the music industry heave struggled with mental health. We sadly have to admit that we find more and more people not being able to cope with these situations.”

He added, “I believe it’s still something that’s not talked about enough yet it’s very important to listen to each other, be attentive, and also consider getting help from professionals if you’re affected.”

The band offered connections to agencies that can help people dealing with mental health issues.  Links to those agencies are listed below.
