If you're a songwriter itching to make a statement about humanity or looking to tell a tall tale, animals can be a perfect muse. Throughout music history, we've heard from the old blues masters on down through modern indie rock and everything in between - fish, reptiles, mammals, birds, insects and amphibians make great subjects for some of the best songs ever made. Enter guitarist, songwriter and all-around swell fella Geoff Pearlman. Geoff and Ben crack open an entire zoo's worth of informative, goofy, whimsical and sublime tunes about our brothers, sisters and cousins in the animal kingdom. We hope we did them proud.
