Now that I’ve managed to clear out my Christmas CDs from my cluttered car, it’s the perfect time to update my traveling music collection, and that includes kid-friendly selections. Lucky for me, Caspar Babypants (Chris Ballew from The Presidents of the United States of America’s alter ego) is dropping a new kiddie CD in the nick of time. Filled with plenty of original tracks, along with some updated classics like “Twinkle Twinkle” and “Row Row Row Your Boat,” this release packs 19 rockin’ tracks that won’t have you reaching for the fast-forward button. The title track sets the tone for an upbeat mood, while “Baby of Mine” is a gentler lullaby-esque number. Our personal favorite is “Yes and No,” the cleverly written antidote to all those hard-to-answer questions that kids always manage to spring on us at the most “opportune” moments. Easy on the ears without sacrificing smarts, I Found You! is definitely a find for any parent in search of a new sound.
In a Nutshell: Fresh new tunes for car rides and just hanging at home? We’re all ears. I Found You! drops on 1/15/13.
