This is the 3rd album for kids and families from Grammy award winning songwriter and longtime They Might Be Giants bassist DW (Danny wrote the kids' hit "I am a Paleontologist"). Featuring Tina Kenny Jones from his Red Pants Band on co-lead vocal duties. Danny's son Kai and wife Michelle also sing on several tracks. Danny continues to deliver his clever and occasionally educational fun pop music with catchy melodies that you'll be singing even when the music stops!

Just the right mix of geeky and emotional and sardonic. I'm really starting to believe that every member of this, the only supergroup I'll really ever need in my life can do no wrong. I'm just glad I'm not the only one with a bit of a crush on Nicola Tesla... eforenigma
