The Patron Saint(s) of Cuddly Electro Pop

There has been lots of talk about this Saint Etienne kids' CD. I think it was supposed to be a full length release at some point. But ultimately they released "Up the Wooden Hills" (a six-song EP) alongside their Tales From the Turnpike CD in the UK. And I love it—like candy. It's danceable, electro-pop with a kid kicker. Sarah Cracknell's voice is just as loverly as ever. "You Can Count on Me" sounds like one of their brit pop hits, but with counting (in English! In Spanish!) to really bring it on home for the little ones. But I haven't included that song here. I'm just gonna put two up, because I really encourage you to pick it up, even though it is import only now. You get the cracking' good Tales of the Turnpike House, too, after all. So on with the two songs I like best today (may change tomorrow!)

Saint Etienne, "Let's Build a Zoo"
Saint Etienne, "Excitation"
