All In A Day's Work
Buy it at ITunes!

All In A Day's Work (2007) - (iTunes) (CDBaby)

"There have been a bunch of concept albums about dystopian scenarios (Styx’s Kilroy Was Here, Nine Inch Nails’ Year Zero) and inner explorations of hopelessness (Pink Floyd’s The Wall), but Beatnik Turtle’s All in a Day’s Work, which attempts both, is the most effective. The Barenaked Ladies-esque ensemble has crafted a concept album about white-collar workers and office work. Paeans to wireless mouses and blog reading are paired with laments about waking up early, conformity and other symptoms of days spent out of the sun. It’s the mellow-harsher of the year". — Adam Bulger, Hartford Advocate

Work. Work. Work. 16 fun and energetic pop-rock tunes about work and technology. Topics covered include not wanting to go to work; I.T. Departments; interns; being bossed around; working retail ("Can I help you please?"); the troubles of blogging; Google; the ubiquitous bagged lunch; daydreaming about a more adventurous job; not "getting the memo"; annoying project consultants; and "sleepworking" through life.

Santa Doesn't Like You (2002) - (iTunes) (CDBaby)

"...low comedy, parody, biting social commentary and just-plain-weird-assed wackjobbery." -Splendid Zine

Beatnik Turtle's Un-Holiday opus as heard on Dr. Demento and played live at Second City! Packed with one song for each of the fourteen days of Christmas*, this album is a must for all ba-humbuggers out there who've had it up to here with the same old holiday music.

Tackles such topics as Christmas stalkers (hear the live version of Make My Christmas Bright here!), holiday shopping (hear Coed Naked Drunk Xmas Shopping live here!), what happens when you just don’t say “No!” to the yuletide weed (Smokin' the Misletoe), and the importance of taking your Christmas decorations down (hear the live version of Take It Down here!).

*What? You thought there were only twelve days of Christmas?
