I received a copy of this album in exchange for my honest review.
Hot Peas ‘N Butter is a NYC based multicultural family music band, and is back with a new album this July 6. “Back to the Land” is a positive, uplifting album about the world around us.
The first song kicks off the album with a wonderful tune about appreciating our earth. I recognized other familiar children’s artists, like Laurie Berkner. There are other great guests on this album, including Dan Zanes and Peter Yarrow. It is nice to hear a mix of vocals throughout, and the band does such a wonderful job with the instrumentals as well.
While I am often quick to cruise through children’s songs as I sample them, I found myself actually savoring the sounds on this album. Back to the Land has a great children’s appeal, but the songs have such an inviting sound to them that I was actually listening to the music, rather than it fading into the background.
This is such a feel-good album, and not only is the music enjoyable, but the lyrics have lots of great messages about appreciating our earth. This is not just about grateful, but taking a moment to savor what the earth gives to us, from animals to sunshine.
