Product Description

A Tongue Twisting, Terrific New Title From Trout Fishing in America!

Grammy nominees and nationally touring artists Trout Fishing in America is back with their wittiest collection of original story-songs yet. Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers features tongue twisters,
mind-benders, spooky situations and instantly identifiable slices of a kid s life.

From the creepy feeling of stepping in a gooey substance that is definitely not mud, to witnessing the disturbing sight of your sister kissing her boyfriend, to a Zoo Wacky Zoo where tigers do the tango, Trout delivers unexpected musical gems at every turn.

Review

RUBBER BABY BUGGY BUMPERS... say that four times fast! The whimsical tongue twister of youth makes a comeback in the entertaining new album from Trout Fishing in America. Bandmates Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet have a knack for clever lyricism and humorous
ditties, and that is certainly on display with this collection of fun songs about pets, childhood misadventures and mysterious mud-like substances. Keeping in line with their past releases, the music is uniformly upbeat and full of happy acoustic energy as Idlet and Greenwood play
guitar and sing with glee. Kids will venture into the "Zoo Wacky Zoo," where gangster guinea pigs and zombie turtles hang out. There´s also a humorous rhyme-filled story about a punctually-challenged fellow named Nate McTate, a song about the horror of witnessing your older sister smooch her boyfriend and a cute song about sharing (or, should I say, the reluctance to do so). A fun album for the whole family! --Dan Cowan, NewSound Kids

The "Trouts" Keith (he's the "short" one) and Ezra ( he's the VERY "tall" one!) have been making kids and families laugh and sing along for 37 years now! Their live performances are not to be missed. And they don't talk down to kids and include adults in their humor too. I honestly don't know if either has children but - if they do, the household sing-a-longs must have been fun. All the songs on this new Cd are Trout originals and are most are based on ideas that came from songwriting workshops in elementary schools.

What separates these guys from some other children's artists is their musicianship. They can play "adult instrumentals too". One of the highlights here is "Don't Touch My Stuff" Just listen to Ezra's banjo breaks!

Okay, not everything worked for me as an adult. The title track was one. But I'm not a kid (and I don't have any children). It's the standard tongue twister song; but really the only week one. The rest are great. The nine-panel digi-pak has short background on each of the 12 tracks and I'm guessing (though I haven't looked) that the lyrics are on the duo's website. After all, the Trouts encourage audience participation at their concerts (I've seen them play live a half-dozen times). And, yes, if can see them play live, do.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love at First Twang October 16, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Although I hadn't yet heard of Trout Fishing in America, I loved this CD at first twang! The first song Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers was so fun and upbeat that it put me in a good mood. I was ready for some happy music so I definitely made the right choice.

The silliness continued with My Sister Kissed her Boyfriend. My kids thought this was extra gross but at four and five I certainly hope for that reaction from them!

I especially loved the guitar with it's classic sound. For kids music it seems the best instrument and with it's simplicity you don't really need much more than that. It puts the focus more on the lyrics which had me and my kids cracking up most of the time.

They wanted It's Not Mud played over and over. They just look at each other and say "it's not mud" and start laughing. I think their other favorite was Boo because they love being scared and at Halloween time it's the perfect song! The subject matter on most of the songs was perfect for my four and five year olds. What kid doesn't love mud, bugs and cats?

Rubber Buggy Bumpers is super fun, silly and catchy and perfect kid friendly listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids' Music Adults Can Enjoy October 15, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
The new album from Trout Fishing in America has the musical sophistication that lets grownups enjoy their music along with the kids, as well as the infectious fun that children love. My own kids grew up on this band's songs, and they've just gotten better over the years.

My favorites on this album include the title song, which is filled with tongue twisters and banjo picking, the danceable "Zoo Wacky Zoo" with some terrific old-timey fiddle, and "C-c-c-cold Outside" with masterful guitar work. In each case, the words are silly but smart.

If you've never heard of Trout Fishing in America, you should get to know them. If you're already a fan, you won't be disappointed with this latest offering.

"Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers" is about holding on to 16 - or six - as long as you can.

It helps when you push a gentle electric guitar up in the mix, have snug harmonies center left of the Everlys, and set them to tongue-twisting, slightly subversive lyrics fun enough for any campfire.

Trout Fishing in America, formed of Ezra Imlet (guitar) and Keith Grimwood (bass), has done this quite well through a 16 album career they started the Bicentennial year. That's time enough for baby boomer parents and kids to laugh/smirk at silliness like "That's Not Mud," (guess what it is?) catch the gentle reggae groove and goofy 50s-style vocals on "My Sister Kissed Her Boyfriend" (TFIA compares it to spoiled vegetables in the fridge) and understand a cat's commands in "Meow Meow Meow."

And the set provides plenty of fun wordplay as its titles attest. The title song floats its tongue twisters on mountain banjo so smooth it'll drive kids and adults crazy when they can't twist along (let alone when its bridge shifts into a mild rap.) The tragicomic "Late Great Nate McTate" has a talking blues feel, while "Boo!" startles you with the title amidst some sleepy Latin-flavored guitar interplay.

It's all good fun capturing childhood's minor rebellions and naughty joys: waking up on cold mornings (the flamenco into funk "C-c-c-cold Outside") catching dead bugs, making up animal names (the Blues Traveler-flavored "Zoo Wacky Zoo") and dealing with touch, sights, smells, and flavors which gross you out as much as make you smile. But to make it work the sounds have to be good; Trout Fishing in America and "Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers" are. Recommended.
