Recess Monkey – Deep Sea Diver

Fun Find- In our house the band Recess Monkey is pretty damn cool. We saw them on a blisteringly hot day two years ago at Wolf Trap Theatre-in-the-Woods and despite the intense heat we all thought it was worth it. The trio that makes up Recess Monkey put on a great show. Their latest album, Deep Sea Diver ($14.99), might be even better than their last one. My kids love anything to do with the ocean and undersea life so this collection of songs has been a big hit.

Available June 18 and geared for ages 2-8 we are definitely going to have to take in a live show this summer and hope to hear these songs.  It’s silly but not annoying for adults, high-energy music that is well-written and played.  It’s so fun and creative that I find myself singing along and laughing each time we listen to songs like, Fish Sticks and Tambourine Submarine.  There are light-hearted songs, laid-back ones and all of them are fun to sing along to.
