They Might Be Giants have their second official “childrens” album on the Disney label. Here Come the ABCs ought to be worth a listen, though I note with some trepidation that this album is said to be more “educational” than the last. That doesn’t sound good, but TMBG could probably get a little bit edutational without making one’s eyes cross.

Here’s the complete list of this week’s major new releases, courtesy AMG:
