There are some children's music artists or groups that I just can't get enough of...one of those being Recess Monkey! Ever since I was introduced to their music, I instantly became a life-long fan! Each album of theirs is unique, fun, and fresh! The sounds are great, the lyrics creative, and the timeless nature of their beats is unstoppable!! AND tomorrow they are set to release their ninth studio CD Deep Sea Diver.
Deep Sea Diver is Recess Monkey's "blue album," an ocean-themed recording set in a submarine that plumbs the musical depths of the sea before becoming shipwrecked on the beach of a distant lost island. Conceived as "the Recess Monkey-est Recess Monkey album ever," Deep Sea Diver is filled with a boatload of the band's over-the-top, super zany, clever, high-energy songs that deliver lots of synth, funk, and everything in between, all written and produced with a high degree of seaworthy musical and creative artistry.
I have been listening to this album for a few weeks and I'm pretty sure it is actually one of the main reasons we picked an Under the Sea theme for my daughter's upcoming birthday party. Every time we put the album on, we are transported into a underwater wonderland. Our moods are lightened, our days are bright, and the music flows throughout the house. It's basically a musical deep sea adventure and even vacation at home! I really cannot say enough about Recess Monkey and their fabulous new album. In my opinion, this music should be in every home in America! They just have this great ability with music that makes listening to their albums so enjoyable! And you can bet this album will be playing in the background next week during our Under the Sea Birthday Bash...just wish you could all be here to enjoy it with us!
