Yo Mama by Larry G(EE) Larry Gayao (Larry Gee) is a Dallas based musician that just recently released a retro-soul barn burner of a track entitled Yo Mama that is totally made to be played at high volumes. This retro soul style is becoming pretty popular (thanks Raphael Saadiq, Mayer Hawthorne) and this is one of the most fun tracks I’ve heard this year. The sound is fresh, totally fun, vocally impressive and totally exciting. I’m told a full EP is in the works, and we should be hearing more from Larry Gee very soon. Download the track for free…
Miniature Day Parade Just hearing this track, I’m late to the party, err the Parade. It might be old to you (out sept ’10) but its new to me. Either way… this is a breath of fresh air on a gray day. This song has all the bounciness you’ll ever need, big ol choruses and just the right amount of twang infused pop music for a perfect boost in my day. The song comes from their album ‘Melt White’ out on Park the Van Records (which is becoming one of my favorite labels these days). Buy Melt White
