Album Review

Duplex – “Ablum” – [Mint Records] (CD)

lombard   10/12/2005   A Library, CD

This is a fun, kid-like poppy record that seemed like a cross between Trachtenburg Family, King Kong and Jad Fair. Upon closer inspection it turns out that this Vancouver, British Columbia-based group is comprised of kids and adults and the release is meant to be an adult-friendly kids? album. The kids on here include 3-year-old Abe Caruso on xylophone, harmonica and rattles. A couple of 11-year-olds are also members. Enjoy the songs about salad, monkeys, robots, camels and a wacky number about Bethlehem. They also cover one of my favorite ‘School House Rock? songs’the somber ‘Figure 8.’
