Celtic music has long been known for both its danceable jigs and reels and its tranquil, beautiful melodies. Putumayo Kids focuses on the softer side of Celtic music, harvested from the rich musical traditions of Ireland, Scotland, eastern Canada and beyond. Celtic Dreamland features songs that are perfect for the slumbering child, meditating mom and dad or the weary worker desperate for a little quiet relaxation. The artists on Celtic Dreamland include some of the most renowned Celtic musicians in the world. Karen Matheson, widely recognized as the haunting vocals of Scottish super-group Capercaillie, contributes the lilting "An Fhideag Airgid" (The Silver Whistle). With family roots in Cape Breton, a Canadian island on the Atlantic Ocean coast, Mary Jane Lamond's childhood was steeped in the region's strong Scottish heritage, and it's not surprising that she fell in love with Gaelic music. "Cagaran Gaolach" (Loveable Little Darling) is a classic lullaby from this rich tradition. The incomparable Scottish singer-songwriter Dougie MacLean provides the aptly-titled "Goodnight and Joy," and Seamus Egan, from the well-known Irish-American group Solas, adds the lovely "When Juniper Sleeps." Other well-known artists featured on Celtic Dreamland include Irish harpist Áine Minogue, who has entertained presidents and prime ministers. The versatile Irish musician Susan McKeown has a distinct talent for making the music her own, whether she's performing solo or alongside Malian griots, Mariachi musicians or other international collaborators. Scotland native Mairi Mac Innes, Scottish duo The Cast and Irish songstress Lasairfhíona Ní Chonaolaput add the finishing touches to this soothing release.

Pete the Cat Set (Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes, Pete the Cat Rocking in My School Shoes, and Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons) by Eric Litwin (2013) Paperback
Pete the Cat Set (Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes, Pete the Cat Rocking in My School Shoes,
Pete is one unflappable cat. Whether the buttons of his favorite shirt keep popping off or he's going to school for the first time, Pete never loses his cool. No matter what little surprises come his way, his motto is: "It's all good." And he usually has a catchy song to sing as he goes through his day! Originally, Pete was a black cat adopted by the artist James Dean. Inspired by his new pet, Dean created a series of paintings starring Pete, painted blue instead of black. When fellow Georgia resident Eric Litwin discovered the paintings at an art gallery, he just knew that he wanted to create a picture book with Pete the Cat. Add one bouncy song and some awesome shoes, and the sing-along, read-aloud phenomenon was born! Loved by parents, teachers, and kids alike, Pete the Cat stories are now available as picture books and early readers.

Some of My Best Friends Are DJs
Some of My Best Friends Are
As his alter-ego, "Kid Koala," might suggest, Eric San applies a joyous childlike vision to his music on Some of My Best Friends Are DJs. Following turns with Money Mark, Deltron 3030, and Lovage, Canada's cheekiest mixologist defied weighty expectations with his beguiling debut album, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Three years later, and Kid Koala has retained his youthful verve. Packaged with a 52-page, self-penned comic and a travel chess kit, Some of My Best Friends Are DJs offers less in the way of music, with the 35-minute running time meaning the restless sonic snippets wisely end before his humor has a chance to grate. Mixing sleazy whisky-bar vibes with adolescent antics, his second album never allows the listener to settle. Moments of playful mixing magic are at times followed by baffling inanity as "Skanky Panky"--with its wonderfully shattered Ska rhythm and frantic scratches--runs into "Flu Season", ostensibly a series of beat-accompanied coughs, sneezes, and sniffs. Blending blues, jazz, and funk with a myriad of bizarre samples, moments of pure eccentric genius such as "Robochacha" and "More Dance Music" make this a flawed yet fascinating slice of beat-driven bravura. --Christopher Barrett
