Yo Gabba Gabba! readies 2nd volume of music featuring Weezer, MGMT

on August 24, 2010, 1:25pm

At least one certain CoS writer loved the first volume of Yo Gabba Gabba! Music Is… Awesome! Now, after the announcement of a 60-city tour, said carefree spirit and others like him will once again get to experience Yo Gabba Gabba! and its nurturing of inner child and actual children everywhere with the August 31st release of Music Is… Awesome! Volume 2. Take that, adulthood.

While not as flashy as the original (which featured tracks like Of Montreal’s “Brush Brush Brush” or The Shins’ “It’s OK, Tray Again”) and with far more filler tracks by the show, it doesn’t mean the album doesn’t deserve a special place in your five year old’s CD collection (alongside perhaps old school Raffi or The Wiggles ). With tracks by Weezer, Jimmy Eat World, Apples in Stereo, and even MGMT, there’s enough good stuff for even the most hardened adult to enjoy. Not convinced? Enjoy Weezer’s “All My Friends Are Insects” below via Hypetrak.com.

Check out the whole tracklist below, plus tour dates, which also feature the fresh-from-the-studio The Salteens. Music Is… Awesome! Volume 2 hits stores August 31st via Filter U.S.
