Reviewed 2007-01-23 
Silly children's songs for adults, indie rock style. Check the back for song titles, which basically give away the whole song. fCC clean.
Picks 5,12,13,11,3,18

1-(1:08) Intro song. Straigth foward rock with handclaps.
2-(1:12) Song about beer goggles sung to a trad. nursery rhyme.
*3-(2:09) Slow Raffi style brushed drums, ukelele. Lots of fake sesame voices singing along in the background.
4-(1:11) Slower/mellow. "Sneezing on spoons", Interuptions of farty distortion.
**5-(1:39) Constrast between high pitched raincloud voice and bass chorus.
6-(0:39) Sweet, simplistic folk.
7-(1:47) Dark, mystery, whisper/sung. Jazzy.
8-(1:49) Dark, distorted screamed vox. Trombone.
9-(2:33) Fast. Sung like a children's song. Straightfoward.
10-(0:54) Slide whistle. Inane.
*11-(1:03) Pleasant. breezy. Nice bass line. Closer to indie.
*12-(1:20) Soft, college nylon string indie folk. Except the lyrics are ridiculous.
*13-(1:33) Mid/fast. Ramones with a little organ. Those damn skaterpunks invaded the discotheque and made a lot of mischief.
14-(1:16) Ukalele. Straightfoward children's song.
15-(1:20) "Reggae". Inane. Vocalist cracks up.
16-(1:46) Mid/fast. Strumed acoustic indie rock. Brushed drums. Slide whistle take the melody on the hook.
17-(1:34) Country rock twang. Lyrics like a Jack Prelutsky poem.
*18-(1:01) Delicate, incandescent indie folk (lots of jangly picking). Lyrics are strange as usual.
19-(0:59) Instr. Sounds like people playing on two
children's toys.
