Listening Booth, Music
Last month I featured the album art for Mocean Worker's latest album, Candygram for Mowo! on this very blog. Today I've got something even cooler for you. It's a video for the leadoff track from the album, "Shooby Shooby Do Yah!", by Polish artist Czarek Kwaśny. It totally nails the feel of the song and is really fun to watch. Shobby Shobby Do Yah from Czarek Kwaśny on Vimeo. Kwaśny apparently put a lot of thought not just into the animation for this video, but into the concepts behind the animation. If you want to get, like real deep man, check out his explanation of the piece here.

Album Cover of the Week, Music
I knew nothing about Adam Dorn, aka Mocean Worker (pronounced Motion Worker) before last week, but one glance at the cover for his latest album -- Candygram for Mowo! -- was enough to make me want to check him out. It's been a long time since I decided to listen to an album just because of its cover, but this did the trick. Luckily for me, Candygram for Mowo! is actually a good album. Some of the songs evoke the Big Band/Swing era nicely, just like the repurposed photo on the cover. Witness the outstanding lead track, "Shooby Shooby Do Yah!" (linked below) and "Hoot and Hollah."
