For me, listening to Trout Fishing in America is like welcoming my favorite, wacky uncles into the house. Their brand of family music is classic, silly and endearing and their new album “Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers” is at once refreshing and comforting in its familiarity. I mean, they’ve been doing this for 37 years, (wow!) and their low tech mix of Americana, blues and rockabilly are more welcome in our family music library than ever.
The title track is the mouthful “Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers”—a fun mix of banjo pickin’ (yes, a banjo fan am I—a child of “Hee Haw!”) and sing-a-longs to other tongue twisters that kids will love. Animals are featured throughout the album as well, including fun rhymes on the danceable “Zoo Wacky Zoo” and your cat’s inner thoughts revealed in “Meow, Meow, Meow.”
But the laugh out loud songs are what makes Trout Fishing in America special—”It’s Not Mud” and “My Sister Kissed Her Boyfriend” will lighten even the most moody, messed up day that comes your way.
