This kooky crew of teacher-musicians has just put out their seventh album, and this time they’ve really outdone themselves. Funny lyrics capture the experience of being a kid, while high-quality musicianship delights parents with music that actually sounds like music. Take songs about favorite books, grandmom’s house, or super-powered stuffed animals, put them to an indie-rock sound, and you’ve got something everyone will want to listen to. (Recess Monkey, $8.99)
