Ex-Moldy Peaches singer Kimya Dawson enjoyed some unexpected success recently due to her contributions to the Juno soundtrack, but this solo album is directed toward a much different audience. She and a team of kids have made children's album Alphabutt, presumably a result of the singer becoming a mother a couple of years ago.
Reviewers who were expecting an album for grown-ups haven't been thrilled by this collection of songs about potty training, teething, bears and little monster babies, but if you listen to it from the intended perspective, it's a great take on music for children. Parents are too often forced to choose between dull educational tunes or marketing vehicles for Disney products. This is just silly fun and quite heartwarming in a goofy way - well, as long as you're not horrified by the idea of your little miracle joyfully singing along to songs about farts.
