Those Lavender Whales play goofy folk-rock or light-rock songs, with childish lyrics. It’s kind of a cross between Bare Naked Ladies and Raffi. RIYL Burl Ives children’s songs, Puff the Magic Dragon, etc. but with a weird sense of humor. Instrumentation includes accordion, banjo, strings, and electronic sounds. This is silly and fun.

No FCC issues

1 First 30 seconds is an electric buzz, followed by a very silly song. (1:38)
2 * Mid-tempo. Very upbeat & fun. Children’s song lyric, folky instrumentation. (2:28)
3 * Mid-tempo. Two good male voices. Good electric guitar and organ. (2:34)
4 Mid-tempo. Gentle banjo, hard elec guitar, sleigh bells, Beach Boys-y harmony. (2:34)
5 Acoustic guitar & bells. Fretboard squeeks are as painful as blackboard scratching. (2:50)
6 ** Mid-fast. Good singing. Mult good guitar parts, and banjo. Less silly, still fun. (3:00)
7 Mid-tempo. Acoustic guitar & vox, then circus calliope, then fuzzy elec guitar. (2:59)
8 *Mid-tempo. Starts simple, quiet, quaint. Grows to be loud & powerful. Interesting. (3:29)
9 Fast. Hokey silliness done in a country style. (1:55)
10 ** Mid-tempo. Childish lyric, simplistic banjo picking, a plastic flute, some bad whistling. But it all adds up to be rather touching and heartfelt. (2:40)
11 * Mid-tempo. Miscellaneous silly sounds backed by rhythm guitar. Toward the end, a harder rock guitar. Worth a listen for the more adventurous. (2:51)
12 ** First half is flat & dull. Second half is pretty cool: an upbeat folk-rock song. (2:20)
