GET ON THE BUS FOR A FANTASTIC ‘FIELD TRIP’ with RECESS MONKEY - Giveaway

Just in time for school Recess Monkey is releaseing a new album, "Field Trip"!

With tremendous exhilaration, independent children’s recording group Recess Monkey has set a June 9 release for their fifth studio CD, Field Trip (Monkey Mama, $15.00, run time 41 minutes). A companion piece to Recess Monkey’s 2008 release, Tabby Road, the CD includes material from Recess Monkey’s “Field Trip Recording Session” at which kids in the audience (the group’s most devoted “Monkey-heads”) were recorded singing live, during a Valentine’s Day 2008 Seattle show.

The three members of Recess Monkey are teachers who met while working at the same Seattle school. The trio’s genuine enthusiasm for a grad school project morphed into their 2005 debut release Welcome to Recess Monkey Town. This was followed by another popular (and zoologically correct) hit, Aminal House. The teachers (Jack Forman, Daron Henry, and Drew Holloway) made history with their next release, Wonderstuff, the first double CD children’s album produced from material generated at a kids’ summer camp workshop. Likewise, 2008’s Tabby Road and the newest Recess Monkey album, Field Trip, each came from real life children’s experiences.

Field Trip starts where Tabby Road left off, putting a wacky, fantastical edge on the "everyday lives of kids.” The world of Recess Monkey continues to expand in this album, with a whole new cast of characters: sack lunches that come to life while their owners explore new territory, a brigade of lice that invades a classroom (something the members of Recess Monkey have all encountered as teachers), and even an octopus with a penchant for "knock-knock” jokes.


Field Trip’s music leads off with “Fort,” an up-tempo celebration of the fact that a magical trip is never very far away. With that, the adventures, big and small, begin in earnest (no permission slip needed). There are misty marshmallow fields to explore, a chance to hide away on pirate ship, the adventure of getting lost at a bubble factory, and the long, winding road to the nurse’s refrigerator for an ice pack – made much easier when you're with a good friend. Field Trip is like a sack lunch when you're far from home. Open it up and be greeted with something familiar and comforting: another batch of expertly produced sing-alongs from those Beatles-lovin', shenanigan songsters, Recess Monkey. As Drew Holloway puts it, “There's a giant brownie of sugary pop inside but the whole thing is very new-tritious!”

Field Trip will be available for purchase and further exploration at recessmonkeytown.com, amazon.com, cdbaby.com, pokeypup.com, theAVCafe.com, bigkids.com, and The Land of Nod.

I run a home daycare and we don't go on field trips, but I know "my" kids would love to sing about them!

I wan to win because I get tired of my daughter's "kiddie" music very easily so I like to have a wide variety of options! New music sounds better than listening to the same stuff over and over.
