Alphabutt follows up the highly successful soundtrack, "Juno", which featured many of Kimya Dawson's songs. A collection of children's songs written by Dawson along with her musical friends and their children. Hailed by the likes of Rolling Stone, NPR, Blender, and Pitchfork as a seriously talented wordsmith, Dawson successfully leads a group of children in this sunny and energetic batch of tunes with plenty of fun in the form of snapping fingers, clapping hands, and stamping feet. Tender and vulnerable; silly and raw.
For those who came along to see Kimya live at her recent Australian and New Zealand shows will no doubt remember many of the tracks she performed came from Alphabutt. Now you can finally get them on CD. Songs like "Bobby-o", "I Like Bears", "Little Panda Bear" and "Louie" are instants classics.
Alphabutt is in stores on September 13 but will be available on ITunes a week earlier on September 6. The packaging is incrediblye cute as well and includes a huge poster!
