As the leaves begin to crinkle and brown, ready for their descent from the trees, children’s music artists’ focus turns as well.
Indeed, I can report on new songs from Uncle Dox and the long-absent ScribbleMonster. Uncle Dox has issued “Laser Beam Eyes,” a 1980s rap throwback with sound effects that will satisfy all video game players (from two generations). And there’s more to come in the near future.
It’s been a while since ScribbleJim and ScribbleJayne released new material, but the band has turned to children’s books in the break (three to date), and continued their live performances. And apparently there’s a Greatest Hits compilation coming in 2020. In the meantime, here’s “Amazing Brain,” their power-pop, positive-values ode to using your noodle and not taking yourself for granted.
