Chattanooga Parent on TINY COOL

"Princess Katie & Racer Steve (husband and wife duo Katie and Steve Borne) unleash their third album of rockin’ tunes for the whole family. Tiny Cool is packed with 11 songs and three skits. The music is pop goodness at its best, but don’t think this is bubblegum pop. (Listen to the song “Kids Rock!”, and you’ll see what I mean.) Then there’s “Tube Sox”—not since Julie Andrews belted out her laundry list has there been such a great musical description of someone’s favorite things. Possibly my favorite track on the disc is “Honest Kid”; try to imagine a musical mash-up of The Supremes’ “You Can’t Hurry Love” and The Jam’s “A Town Called Malice.” Princess Katie & Racer Steve are now three for three with Tiny Cool, but I’ll have to say that the title doesn’t do this album justice. Tiny Cool isn’t just cool, it’s amazingly cool. - Dave Loftin of the Saturday Morning Cereal Bowl"
