Recess Monkey is a children’s band based out of Seattle comprised of three rockin' school teachers. We had the distinct pleasure of reviewing their newest cd, The Final Funktier, which will be released on June 15th

If your kiddos are anything like mine, they absolutely love music! My 3 year old, Josiah, was so excited to get his own cd in the mail, he couldn’t wait to pop it in the cd player. As soon as the music started up so did the groove fest in our living room. Josiah ran to get his drums to beat to the rhythm and Liam bounced so hard in his bouncy chair I thought he’d bounce out! From beginning to end The Final Funktier is filled with catchy tunes, a variety of fresh beats and interesting lyrics that will captivate both kids and parents alike.

Usually when I hear the phrase “Children’s Rock” I cringe, but Recess Monkey is in a totally different realm, placing themselves in a genre called “Kindie Rock”. As a big Indie Rock fan myself, I have to say I dig this group. Search for this group on google and get ready for an endless stream of articles and rave reviews about Recess Monkey, including NPR, USA Today, Time Mag! I have to admit, after I started listening to them, I automatically had to stalk them and find out more info. 

I definitely give my seal of approval for Recess Monkey's The Final Funktier and think it's a great cd to add to any collection. Whether your kids want to dance around the living room or listen to some tunes in the car, the music is perfect for entertaining them! Check out a list of songs & lyrics on their website and get a chance to hear some of the new album.
