In Tents by Recess Monkey

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a review copy of the album "In Tents" by the seattle based trio Recess Monkeys. So what kind of sound does 3 elementary school teachers have?

A very awesome one.

I have to admit that even though this band has been around since 2005, I have never heard of them. Now I am a pretty busy Momma so I took this cd, threw it onto my itunes and then slapped it onto the girls ipod.

I put one album on for the girls every night and I started playing "In Tents" for them. After a few nights The Phi has requested this album every night. She is always talking about the songs and so I started playing it during the day and she is right. This is one great album. My daughter said that she really liked how fun the songs are to sing. I asked her what songs she liked and she said...
In Tents
Popcorn
Sit and Spin
Human Cannonball (I cannot get this song out of my head)
Odditorium
Bouncy House
Carousel
Twins
I Could See
House of Cards
Edwina Mae
The Dancin' Bear
Lemonade
Crystal Ball
Show on the Road

She listed the whole CD. 

Listening to this album is like taking a trip to the circus. It is fun and lively and cool enough for parents to enjoy it too. 

The CD drops (I am so freakin hip) on June 19th.
