Alex in Wonderland
Three and a half years in the making, Virtual Daydream is proud (and relieved) to announce the release of Alex in Wonderland, the first release from Alex the Seal. A fun and energetic listen for both kids and parents, Alex in Wonderland turns the standard sugar-coated children's fare on it's head to deliver a 12-pack of songs that are both edgy and educational. From rock to calypso to punk to europop and styles in between, Alex the Seal's music covers a wide range of sounds as he sings about many hard-hitting topics facing children, such as schoolyard games, world geography, and math. Alex in Wonderland begins with Alex receiving a tape recorder for his birthday, and his new gift transports him to the world of his imagination, where childhood observations are transformed from simple recordings into full-blown productions that draw from many musical and lyrical influences such as The Dead Milkmen, Violent Femmes, New Order, Green Day, Erasure, The White Stripes, Lil Jon, O-Zone, and White Zombie.
