"Resistance is futile." --Jeff Bogle, Out With The Kids/ Cooper and Kid
Check out this rad review of Occasional Yogurt from super awesome/acclaimed dad blogging machine Jeff Bogle:
"I like goofball music played well with a genuine sense of wonder and appreciation for the wackiness inherent in every single child. This is, pretty much dead-on, why Mo Phillips, a goofball Portland singer-songwriter, appeals so much to my sensibilities as a dad, big kid, and music lover. His songs and song titles (see new album title) make no sense on the surface or, frankly, just below it, his voice is far from what any sane person would consider perfect, and there is no discernible flow to his albums and yet…AND YET! my kids and I each gravitate strongly to his freaky-folk songs about being the “Champion of Sleepy Time,” a sultry analysis of what’s worth swapping in our school “Lunchbox,” and falling in love with a couch named “Maria”. It is impossible not to be charmed by the oddness of it all. Resistance is futile."

"Mo Phillips’ Monster Suit [is] one of our favorite discs of the year, one that refuses to stay out of the CD player for very long."
Jeff Bogle OWTK.com
We've been getting some rad reviews for Monster Suit.
"Phillips fills his CD with a tasty set of music that is distinguished by his delightfully askew sense of humor. The Portland, OR-based musician brings a sweet lo-fi kindie rock vibe that fits the tunes and makes the music a wonderfully charming listen for backseat kids and front seat adults."
--Michael Berick, L.A. Parent
"A super fun CD from Mo Phillips called Monster Suit. I’m seriously digging Mo’s voice and rocking beats, and in fact my hips starting wiggling and my feet started shuffling within the first couple bars of track one… love it!"
Don’t be ashamed if you find yourself humming Mo Phillips songs even after the kids are in bed. This Portland dad has kids and parents in mind when writing his songs. Fans of indie rock will like his quirky melodies and both generations can relate to topics like bad dreams and the joy of riding a bike.
