Artist: Kepi Ghoulie
Album: Kepi For Kids
Age Range: 2 through 6
Description: Just like his Fun Fun Records bandmates Play Date, the first album from pop-punk rocker Kepi Ghoulie shouldn't scare anybody who thinks that punk rock isn't appropriate for preschoolers. (That's not necessarily true all the time, but that's a separate discussion.) There are some similarities with Caspar Babypants, and it's not just the bald head -- Kepi's album is a mostly acoustic poppier and goofier version of Mr. Ballew's preschool-aged tunes. I prefer the CB stuff, but there are some really good tracks here, most notably the sweet "Moonbeam" and the lovey-dovey country-fried "Days That End In 'Y'," which deserves to be on some dopey romantic comedy (or kid-friendly comedy) soundtrack. I'm pretty sure it'll give your kids (and you) at least a handful of smiles in its 30-minute run-time. Recommended.
Note: I received a copy of this album for possible review.
