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
Sit and Spin
Human Cannonball (I cannot get this song out of my head)
Bouncy House
I Could See
House of Cards
Edwina Mae
The Dancin' Bear
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.
