Our High Five feature album this week is a true blue album for Aussie kids – In My Backyard by Spikey and Friends!
Spikey and Friends is a musical mob led by musicians Michael Turner, Nick Fisher and six wonderful kids from Northern New South Wales.
This nature-themed family album is inspired by the bushland of the area, featuring k-indie rock songs that focus on native Australian animals and land. You’ll hear the story of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly, the soothing acoustic tale of a beautiful little black duck and the familiar sounds of Old McDonald remixed with the language and didgeridoo sounds of the Indigenous Bundjalung people, amongst a lot more.
In My Backyard is a fun and musical introduction to the plants, animals and people of Australia. Listen out for Kinderling’s High Five selections on air all this week.
