Love a Ladybug
Label: The Harmonica Pocket
For those who care about such things, Ladybug One may very well be the first off-grid children's music album -- it was recorded at a solar-powered studio in Washington state. Yay! And then, oh yeah, there's the music, which isn't too shabby either. Nicely acoustic original songs about fireflies, spiders and bumblebees alone would make us more than pleased, but then the band just gets kooky with a North Indian "O Susanna" and an indie-pop rendering of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." These kid-friendly indie-pop folks are on the way to becoming big favorites.
