The sophomore album from Grammy nominees Alabama Shakes demonstrates the tremendous strides made by the band since their debut. Here they take their soulful blues rock base into innovative new directions.
The songs focus on themes of good hygiene and staying safe. For example, songs touch upon bathing, brushing teeth, covering one's mouth when coughing, avoiding illness and buckling one's safety belt when in the car. Palmer uses simple lyrics with a catchy twist to make these singable songs stick in the head and be easily repetitive. His warm, engaging singing voice adds to the effect, mixed with arrangements that are vibrant and upbeat.
With this session, Palmer presents a set of creative songs that are themed after basic vocabulary and learning concepts, designed to help children learn about shapes, body parts, safety terms, transportation methods and kitchen utensils, among other things.
