Tara Scheyer and the Mud Puppy Band release HiFi Felix Vol. 1, filled with kid-friendly, comforting music. Managing the too-rare trick of combing child-minded simplicity with real sense of musicality, the 13 tunes - a mix of Scheyer originals and inspired covers - educate, entertain and engage both parent and child. Avoiding the obvious and embracing the unusual, the songs were selected and written using criteria deemed important for a younger audience. The songs are catchy and cover an array of topics important to the young (counting to 10, alligators and the dinnertime blues) and feature Ms. Scheyer's singularly comforting singing style. In the Uhles house, both 'Alligator King' and 'Never Smile at a Crocodile' are firm favorites, effectively replacing Barney as the reptile of choice. -Steven Uhles Pop Rocks The Augusta Chronicle.
