Video Premiere: Eric Herman and the Puppy Dogs – “Googly Eyes”

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard some new music from Eric Herman. He’s back, sans The Invisible Band and adding The Puppy Dogs, with his latest album, Magic Beans, releasing in March. The first single is “Googly Eyes”. Eric describes the song as “funny, catchy, with a Schoolhouse Rock feel.” He adds, “this was one of those rare ‘woke up at 3 a.m. and here was a song, virtually complete’ kind of things.”

The song follows a kid who loves to “enhance” everything with plastic googly eyes. As the song states, “everything’s better with googly eyes.” “Everything” includes monuments, bridges, historical structures, even classical works of art. Eric says, “the kid is seen as ‘vandalizing’ monuments and art works, but it’s his art. He adds the song “sets up the idea that we shouldn’t take things too seriously, which comes back in the medley at the end.”

Eric Herman and his daughter storyboarded the video and the animation is by Geoffrey Sinn and team at Studio Ace Productions. Watch the video below for “Googly Eyes”.

Video Premiere: Flor Bromley – “Mango’s Tango”

Flor Bromley’s music is influenced by many different Latin American songs and styles. She says all of her music styles come from a part of her background. Her latest album takes a closer look at nature, hence the title Pachamama who is considered an Earth Mother or goddess in Inca mythology. Her love of musical theatre and pop music are both on display here. “I like how both of those styles go deep into discoveries while having up-beat tempos,” says Flor.

Her latest single, “Mango’s Tango”, follows a mango who is not allowed to be who he wants to be. This came from Bromley’s own experience in Peru. “I was laughed at for liking Musical Theatre because it’s not a common thing.” She adds, “this song is for everybody out there to remember to shine their light and be allowed to like whatever they want and show it because differences are what makes things interesting.”

The songs on Pachamama are in English and Spanish, making it a great way for kids to dip their toes into learning a different language. Watch her new video below for “Mango’s Tango”.
