Camp Andyland by Andy Z
With high energy, rib-tickling sound effects, and an assured pop beat, Andy Z serves up silly songs —”Sticky Bubble Gum,” “Cecil (The Serpentine Dragon)”—and such goofy, sing-along edutainment tracks as “I Went to a Party With Dinosaurs,” a counting “Pirate Song,” and “Galaxy Song” (“we go around the sun/we’re not the only ones”). The album winds down with a tender change of pace, most notably in “Butterfly,” an observation of a butterfly’s life cycle: “Little soul with colors bright/spread your gentle wings into the sky ?”
