ODDS & ENDS by Andrew & Polly Review & Giveaway!

 I'm so excited to bring ANDREW & POLLY'S newest cd  ODDS & ENDS for review here at A Rup Life!  The couple has come up with an amazing album that has a bit of a modern bluegrass feel to this eclectic album. It is easy on the ears and features some really catchy lyrics!


Odds & Ends is, indeed, quirky and eclectic, just like Andrew & Polly!  The album kicks off with "Little Bitta You," a soft, sweet tune that gets big and happy, and, like childhood, is a bit nonsensical at times.  The song also provides a great showcase for trombonist Gabe Feenberg (Terraplane Sun).  "Ghostbusters," the song that deftly set the silly/scary ambience of the eponymous 1984 film, completely lives up to its reputation in Andrew & Polly's version, which features theramin, marimba, accordion, kazoos, whistles, synthesizers, and the voices of a collection of their youthful fans bellowing, "Who you gonna call?" into the iPhones of their amazed parents.

What's next for this dynamic duo?  Andrew & Polly are busy developing EAR SNACKS
, a new kind of podcast -- for kids, featuring kids -- and they can't wait for fans to hear it!

Odds & Ends is available at CDbaby, iTunes, and at Andrew & Polly's shows.

 My Thoughts:

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this album. Honestly while it is a kids cd it has a lot of what I like to listen to as an adult. The stellar standout is a wonderful remake of Bob Dylan's Forever Young. It is a total children's album which songs like Fruitphabet - where the duo sings through fruits for each letter of the alphabet.  What a fun song - my little guy enjoyed this one! He just loves his ABCs!  The last I want to spotlight is Ghostbusters - which is perfect for the Halloween season! Love hearing my little guy sing along to this one.  Truly this is a fun album!

One lucky reader will win a copy of ODDS & ENDS!
