ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
:: NOMINATED FOR A 2007 AUSTRALIAN RECORDING INDUSTRY AWARD (ARIA) FOR BEST CHILDREN'S ALBUM ::

'TRULY INSPIRATIONAL!' Sydney Opera House

Coco's Lunch are 'Melbourne's magical purveyors of the a cappella art' and Australia's most important exponents of contemporary Australian vocal music and quality music for young audiences. Renowned for their extraordinary song writing, disarming originality and stunning live performances for both adults and children, these singers have been nominated for a host of Australian and American music awards.

'This group of five women is a national treasure'
Herald Sun, Melbourne

They have received standing ovations for their concerts throughout Australia, Asia, Canada and Europe, and in 2003 scored at the USA Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards for their album A Whole New Way of Getting Dressed - BEST FOLK/WORLD SONG (Thulele Mama Ya by Lisa Young) and RUNNER-UP BEST FOLK/WORLD ALBUM.

'Inordinately, preposterously, almost slanderously talented.' ABC Radio National, Australia

Coco's Lunch have recorded numerous independent albums of original songs for both adults and children, and their award-winning work has been featured on countless compilation albums, anthologies, documentaries and films. These five singer/composers have performed magical seasons for children across Australia in venues such as the Sydney Opera House, the Famous Spiegeltent and the Victorian Arts Centre, and toured with the Musica Viva In Schools program throughout Australia and Asia.

RAT TRAP SNAP!, the latest children's release by Coco's Lunch, will have children enchanted and adults in stitches! From aliens arriving for lunch, to Miss Muffet wanting to be a jazz singer, this album will have children snapping their rat traps, clapping, mamboing and using their voices in all kinds of quirky, creative ways.

'These 14 group-written and composed songs are clever, jazzy, catchy and fun. Check out the faux horns on the bouncy "Let's Dance," tap your feet to the rhythmic, saucy salsa tune "Fire" and soaring "Away", enjoy the silly, jazzy "Little Miss Muffet," the McFerrinesque "Nip," and the highly instructional "Baby in Her Belly." "I Sweep My Feet" enters the mind of a precocious child, "Nowhere Train" rolls on a vocal percussion track, and "Rain" and the title tune are surreal romps. "Snap" is a refreshing, surprising joy.' Primarily A Cappella, USA

'A good children's CD needs to be lively, fun, often funny, and engaging enough to get kids to sing along. This release from Australian women's quintet meets all of these high standards! Whether the subject is as morbidly fascinating as rat traps, imaginative as “An Alien At My Table” or an object of curiosity like “Baby In Her Belly,” these are topics that will grab kids' attention. They'll be releasing their energy with “Everybody Let's Dance” and making instrument sounds on “Oh When The Saints…” In other words, they'll have a lot of fun, listen to this often, and keep occupied. What more could a parent want from a kids CD?' a-cappella.com, USA

'Coco's Lunch incorporate such variety and quirkiness into their original music that even in recorded form their songs come across as lively and entertaining. These are clever and funny songs for children, and in terms of showcasing the range of the human voice, they're a great education. Children will be intrigued by the noises, effects and beat boxing displayed here, and entertained by the amusing lyrics. Highlights of the album include 'An Alien At My Table', which will have kids glued to their seats wondering what strange sounds are coming next, and 'Little Miss Muffet', a new take on an old tale.' Melbourne's Child Magazine

Rat Trap Snaps, Crackles and Pops..Yeah!
This music is so easily absorbed by the human brain that it is difficult to remove some phrases, even with hard scrubbing. You'll start singing along and suddenly realise that you can actually improvise, beat-box, create your own sound effects and generally have a great time with some fine musicians. I've been using this in the music classroom and the kids have loved discovering the musical jokes. It can't get any better for a teacher than seeing a bunch of boys bluesing it up with Little Miss Muffet...

Susi

Great kids' CD that parents will enjoy too!
After only a week of listening to the CD, "Alien at my table" is our family's most favority song ever and phrases out of it (upsa upsa daisy, this lunch is getting crazy!) have easily been adopted into our vernacular. Some of the songs are truly brilliant, even if the a-capella voices may not be everone's cup of tea. We like it though!
