If there's one thing I'm learning since starting this blog, it's that kid music totally rocks these days. No more Barney (ughhh....) cuz now it's time for Princess Katie and Racer Steve!
The husband and wife team's CD, "Fast and Feisty," was released in April, and has been playing in a regular rotation in my home since I discovered it still in the package it was mailed in just a few weeks ago. (Bad blogger. Bad!)
But back to "Fast and Feisty" and the Princess and the Racer.
First off, the CD could suck and the lyrics could drive parents to the brink of sanity, and we'd probably still allow our kids to bop incessentaly to the music of their biggest play-date fantasies. I mean, come on! What little girl hasn't wanted to be a princess at least once in her life? And what little boy (or girl) hasn't gotten a thrill pretending to GO FAST like the cool race car drivers?
The added bonus, of course, is that Princess Katie and Racer Steve are a serious rock-n-roll band with the musical talent to match. Katie's got a decidely adult-sounding singing voice that adds a calssy touch to the kiddie lyrics, and even if Buttercup is too young to appreciate the fact that Racer Steve is a master on that guitar of his, I'm not.
My faves on the track include "Holidays," "Sneakers," and "We Dress Ourselves," the last of which will have you singing along at the top of your lungs before you realize that the driver in the car next to you at that red light thinks you have officially lost your mind.
Princess Katie and Racer Steve's "Fast and Feisty" CD is available online for $15.00 at www.princesracer.com, CD Baby, and at loyalty toy and bookstores. But be warned! It's currently sold out at CD Baby, so add your name to the list now to be notified as soon as it's available.
