All Things Considered - 'Pat a Cake' Has Never Sounded So Good

By Stefan Shepherd


Gustafer Yellowgold was created by New York musician Morgan Taylor. He's an animated character from the sun who moves to Minnesota — kind of a reverse snowbird. Have You Never Been Yellow? is Gustafer's second CD/DVD of soothing music videos and music by itself. The videos use a calming animated style that fits very well with the indie pop tunes that Taylor writes, but Shepherd thinks the way the music tells stories holds up on its own without the animation.
