You know, I tried to come up with a snappier/wittier headline for this, but all the possibilities -- "Alphabutt is Alpha-better than most!," "Do Ya Like Kimya?," "D'Juno Kimya Has a Kids' Album?" -- seemed, well, way too cheesy. (I gotta admit, though, I kinda like that last one.)
Still, I think you get the point. Kimya Dawson, who was the major contributor to the Juno soundtrack that an unexpected chart-topper earlier this year, has recorded a full-length kids' album called Alphabutt. Set to be released September 9, it's going to be one of the more high profile kids' albums of the year.
And I happen to have the cover art and tracklisting. So, courtesy of K Records, here you go...
I like that cover art. I think kids'll find it hi-larious.

You can go surfing on YouTube for lots of videos of Dawson performing many of these songs live. Here's a version of "I Like Bears" from January. It's one of my favorites from the album...
