The Alphabeticians / Press

“A little bit of the Pixies and R.E.M. . . . with a healthy dose of They Might Be Giants, "Weird Al" Yankovic, and Schoolhouse Rock mixed in. . . . There are some great songs in there (I recommend giving "Metaphor" and "Monkey on my Shirt" a spin . . .”

“Hooky and singable, The Alphabeticians’ first full-length album delivers plenty of subjects, grooves and fun wordplay: perfect for kids learning vocabulary, language concepts and how to get their groove on.”

“Ultimately, though, clever songwriting is not the sole reason why The Alphabeticians are adored by children and their parents. Equally important is their obvious love of music, and their desire to share it with kids. Nowhere is that more apparent than at the band’s live shows. Their authentic approach to those shows makes it clear that, for them, playing music for kids is an honor and a privilege, not a booby prize.”

“Their style is reminiscent of They Might Be Giants - they have a similar sound . . . but they most resemble them with their smart, funny lyrics. Some of the songs are laugh-out-loud funny. . . . This is a show you will enjoy as much as your kids. I would definitely recommend seeing them soon.”

“Junior is eclectic – at various times we get barbershop, traditional folk, bluegrass, rock, and even techno! However the overall feel is cohesive. This is thanks to “Junior’s” catchy tunes, energy, funny lyrics, and sense of camaraderie between Mr. E and Mr. Hoo. . . . Junior is a must-have in any self-respecting kindie rocker’s library.”
