Regular readers (you know who you are) know that I'm a big Milkshake fan. At our house they're some of our favorite music, and we're not alone: their last album, Great Day in 2009, was nominated for the best children's album Grammy. They've kept busy with some singles and a full concert tour since then, and now they're returning to the recording studio for a new full-length album called Got a Minute?. The concept's simple: make a compilation of over thirty songs that each last under two minutes. The idea sprang from a series of songs they did a few years ago for PBS KIDS, and those tracks that are already done are superb, as you can hear for yourself.
But a new album's expensive, and the band launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds. There are only a couple days left to reach the goal of a mere $14,000, so it's up to all of us who love quality children's music to pitch in. $15 gets you a pre-order of the album, so you're definitely getting your money's worth--plus helping make it available for everyone else. Please go to their Kickstarter page and spread the word as fast as you can--just a few days left!
