To go into my appreciation for Chris Ballew's Caspar Babypants project would take far more time than I have at the moment (not to mention a ruthless editor prepared to cut my ramblings to an acceptable length.
And I feel like that would go against the spirit of CB's music for kids, which is simple, stylish, and incredibly catchy. It's not that he dashes off the music -- or his videos -- there is attention and craft in his output. But there's definitely not a feeling of overthinking things, and as he's been cranking out more than one album a year for several years now, he doesn't have time to overthink things.
The latest Caspar Babypants album Away We Go! was released last week, and the first single from the album is "Mister Cloud." Like many of his videos, the video for "Mister Cloud" has a very simple concept -- it's a hand-drawn cloud looking very cute -- neatly executed. I like it a bunch.
