The Alphabet Rockers have been around for a few years -- their self-titled debut came out almost 4 years ago. The San Francisco-based group is trying to do two things that many have tried, but comparatively few have succeeded at: making tuneful hip-hop for kids, and making tuneful educational music for kids.
On at least one track, they've met both challenges, and made a slick video to boot. Check out "Shape Rap" - v. smooth. It's reminiscent of one of my favorite public service announcement series of all time. (And if you're looking to continue the educational vibes, you might want to also view "Shape Hunt" with the kiddos.)
