Review:
As Milkshake, fiery-haired Lisa Mathews and Mikel Gehl, a.k.a. alt-rock duo Love Riot, are favorites on the family concert circuit--and no wonder. Their deft harmonies and multilayered pop-rock melodies come with infectious exuberance and lyrics that reflect a knowing, parent's-eye observation of childhood. With their first-rate Milkshake band, they shine brighter than ever here, from the "Shake It Up" anthem ("when you color outside the lines/guaranteed you'll find a new design") to the exceptional Beatle-esque title track. Along the way, stops include a sunshine dance, quality Grandma-time, a new recipe for sharing and a soothing "Happy Place (where everything's okay)."
