Hey folks! I hope you had a fun long weekend! We’re back on board this morning with a fun giveaway and a first look at the new music release from our friends Mista Cookie Jar & The Chocolate Chips. Their album, which drops today, is called Ultramagnetic Universal Love Revolution, and when it comes to kid’s music, it doesn’t get much more funky than this.
Before I launch into my usual diatribe of all the songs that I love off this album (of which there are many), I thought I’d stop for a minute and share what happened when I first played it to a bunch of 6 – 9 year olds. If you can imagine throwing a box full of high bouncing balls off a balcony into a backyard full of puppies… that’s akin to the fervent (I should I say furr-vent, to further extend my puppy analogy… *zing*!) excitement and craziness that ensued.
Mista Cookie Jar & The Cookie Chips have this old school hip hop sound, with a cheerful inner child chant. In fact, the song of the same name “Inner Child Rock” is my personal favourite and truly sets the tone for the album.
Other tracks I dig include “Lover Not a Fighter” for its Jackson Five vibe, “Magic Shoes” and “Ur the Music” for their sweet story lines, and title track “Ultramagnetic Universal Love Revolution” for it’s reggae-esque beats.
The song that I’ve decided to share with you today is called “Happy Place” and is the 1st official music video release off Mista Cookie Jar’s 2nd LP, Ultramagnetic Universal Love Revolution. It was filmed in Santa Monica and Venice, California, and was inspired by… “our regular dinner-party-jam-sessions with some of our closest friends and family”.
You can find purchase info for Ultramagnetic Universal Love Revolution online at Mister Cookie Jar’s website.
Congratulations to our winners;
Anna-Banana, Jamie, Christian, and Dylan
