What's the difference between baby boomers and Gen X & co? The aging Mick Jagger leaves kids--and their successively younger model moms--in his wake, and wouldn't think of recording children's music. Meanwhile the archetypal alt culuture band They Might Be Giants is releasing their second kid's album tomorrow.
Here Come The ABC's will be released as both a CD and a DVD, with interesting videos, puppets, and animations by a wide variety of artists. TMBG's songs will appear from time to time on Disney Playhouse. In the mean time, they're performing ABC songs tomorrow night at 7pm at Borders Columbus Circle (in the mall), and they'll be on new dad Conan's show tomorrow night.
Even with all this selling out, it's great to see TMBG are still giants from the block. Their "QU" video looks like it was shot in Park Slope for about a dollar. And in the "Can You Find it?" video, a scene on a subway platform is paired with the lyrics to the Williamsburg national anthem, "Where is the L?" [the second verse, of course, goes "Where is the G?"]
Here Come The ABC's comes with "exclusive Amazon.com content" on CD and DVD, or you can buy it directly from the band. Preview some videos here [nsfw, but only because it automatically launches into ABC songs].
