The ever-lovely Kimya Dawson has gathered her musical friends and their respective children for the recording of her latest record, Alphabutt. With that in mind, Alphabutt clearly focuses on the presence of the children equally as much as Dawson’s conductive input. At times I imagine scenes of pre-school, where the children are huddled around Dawson as she teaches them about faeces and body hair – a scene that is warm, silly and hilarious. Dawson’s clever lyrical work clearly shows her humorous side to the point it where education becomes fun. Alphabutt might soften you up, even slightly.
This one is for your kids or inner child at heart.
Alphabutt is in stores September 13.
