Songs about trains, we were finally able to play Kira Willey’s oft requested “Caterpillar” song, songs about using your imagination and songs about standing up for what you believe in. We featured new music from The Harmonica Pocket and Little Miss Ann.

The Harmonica Pocket’s Ladybug One is offically my favorite release of 2008! It is, in fact, so good that I have trouble finding words to describe it.
That’s all…. that’s my review.
Not really…Okay. So, at times it features a song about bioluminescense, infectious pop about curious spiders, a song about a tree that won’t be cut down (ironically, featuring a singing saw), a Southern American folk song backed by sitar and tablas, a Hindi lullaby, a gorgeous song about the moon- sung partially in Spanish, and a number of other fantastic instrumentals. I’m totally picky, and LOVE this album.
