  • Formed from an all-star cast of Chicago musicians, including the Mekons' Jon Langford and Sally Timms, as well as chanteuse Kelly Hogan, this kid-friendly bunch perform wildlife-related songs to a rich, traditional-flavored musical backing laid down by washboard, National steel guitar, and standup bass. Songs include a reworking of Muddy Waters' "Mannish Boy," titled "I'm an A.N.T.," the delightful "Cyril the Karaoke Squirrel," and Sally Timms' beautiful lullaby, "Toenail Moon." Suitable for kids and parents alike, songs like "Flies on My Taters" and the "Road Safety Song" are both instructional and wonderful entertainment.
