From our Music Judge:
“Antimatter exists/Quantum Physics is real” – not very many singers, let alone children’s musicians, could make this sophisticated lyric sound matter-of-fact and melodic, but Marsha Goodman-Wood does so on the track, “Positrons,” which posits all types of scientific terms in a kid-friendly way. Goodman-Wood and her band do a superb job conveying some very heady ideas in clever, tuneful ways that will entertain listeners of all ages. With their jazz-flavored, poppy rock sound, Marsha And The Positrons sing about squids to offer a lesson on invertebrate creatures and about a sneezing cat to discuss being sensitive to others’ allergies, as well as exploring the “mysteries” of garbage and recyclables collections. “Alien in an Ambulance,” another album highlight, is a wonderfully wacky tune filled with excellent alphabet-centric wordplay.”
