Hot Peas 'N Butter

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.

Hot Peas N Butter Band

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.
