"Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, which Time Out New York Kids magazine just named one of America's top 10 Best Bands for Kids, will releaseMake Believers on May 22nd, 2012 ($15 CD/$9.99 digital), available from Underground Playground Records, iTunes and various retailers.
Secret Agent 23 Skidoo fuses empowering messages with traditional hip hop beats and a dizzying range of musical styles from punky-garage rock to funky-vintage R&B and even muy caliente salsa rhythms.
Secret Agent 23 Skidoo launches his new indie record label, Underground Playground Records, with the release of Make Believers. The label’s name captures the mission and vibe of his brand of family music. “Childhood is such an absolutely unique experience, so potent and beautiful, and when you become a parent you enter a special subculture. Families deserve songs about their experience, and we want to celebrate those stages of life through these songs,” explains Secret Agent 23 Skidoo.
Secret Agent 23 Skidoo turns the typical kiddie story-song on its head by employing a level of musical and lyrical complexity rarely seen in the family genre. Make Believers opens with an energetic adaptation of the classic Jack in the Beanstalk fairytale, “Magic Beans,” in which young Jack ignores the negativity around him to forge ahead with his dreams. Other original songs offer endless encouragement for kids to use their innate intelligence (“Brainstorm”), bravery (“Hi-5 for the High Dive” and “Hot Sauce”), and imagination (“Make the Future”)."
What we thought: This CD was a lot of fun! We loved singing and dancing to the hip beats of Secret Agent 23 Skidoo. The songs are engaging and well-written and a great twist on kid's music that even gets the parents singing along:) This would make a great addition to any children's music library.
