Gustafer Yellowgold’s Mellow Fever is the third in the award-winning series of DVD/CD sets released by Apple-Eye Productions.
Groovy Gustafer Yellowgold has come to Ear th in his Sunpod and landed in Minnesota. He is living out his dream of a cooler existence while making new and interesting friends along the way. Along with a richer look into Gustafer’s former Sun-years, we learn of Slim the eel’s old watery neighborhood within the rolling and climbing acoustic guitars of “Underwater Stars” and lament the loss of some excellent bell-bottoms with Forrest Applecrumbie, the pterodactyl in the thump and jump of “Panther Stamps Pants.” The gang watches as Gustafer learns to put his warm mitts to good use in the acoustic Charleston of “Melter Swelter.” We meet his biggest fan Wincey the ferret between the fan faring french horns of “Sugar Boat,” and tour the world with Sisson the blue worm through the Harry Nilsson-esque romp of “Quite Easily Lost.”
Gustafer Yellowgold’s Mellow Fever has guest-star performances by WILCO’s John Stirratt and Pat Sansone, as well as Lisa Loeb. Each song is accompanied by a series of hand-drawn, minimally animated illustrations set to melodic and catchy tunes ranging from mellow acoustic to crackling-pop.
Since his creation in 2005, Gustafer Yellowgold has become an international phenomenon, acclaimed by the New York Times, which describes it as, “A cross between ‘Yellow Submarine’ and Dr. Seuss.” Enter tainment Weekly praised “…The most infectious original songs. It’s like tapping into some pleasure center in the brain- both adult and kid…absurdly appealing. Grade: A.” New York Magazine named Morgan Taylor “Best Kids’ Performer” in its 2008 “Best of New York” issue. “Mint Green Bee” from Gustafer Yellowgold’s Wide Wild World is the Session I Grand Prize Winner in the Children’s Category of the 2008 John Lennon Songwriting Contest.
