You Wish I Was Channeling Your Spirit
You Wish I Was Channeling Your Spirit is the new record by Phoenix-based musician/motivational speaker Abelardo Gil aka Treasure Mammal. For the past several years, Gil has been spreading his special message of self esteem and physical fitness across the United States and beyond. When describing the new record, Gil explains, 'This album is about community. There is a small distinct community in each of these songs and I feel very fortunate to be graced with the presence of these great performers/musicians on this album. Hooray 4 building community! Put your hands in the middle, wave 'em like you just don't care, step outside the safety zone that you have built yourself, love yourself, take care of the people you love, and live everyday like it was the last!!!'. Using a patchwork of beats for the body, analog synthesizers, and rhymes clearer than Crystal Pepsi, You Wish I Was Channeling Your Spirit speaks to the listener about establishing goals. The only positive addiction in the world of Treasure Mammal is the addiction to over-achieving. Positive life-lessons can be found like hidden gems within each track. How we feel about ourselves crucially affects virtually every aspect of our experience, from the way we function at work, in love, in sex, to the way we operate as parents, to how high in life we are likely to rise. Our responses to the happenings in our everyday life are shaped by who and what we think we are. With this new record, Treasure Mammal helps the listener channel the positive energy of high self-esteem and self-motivation into a sound action plan and firm foundation for future growth, greater character, and a more promising future. On Your mark. Get set. Goal!
