Another fun review for THUMB WRESTLING CHAMPIONS!

Thank you to Eat The Marshmallow for the fun review!

“Debut album alert! The Green Orbs threw down their first album earlier this month and announced their notable presence on the kindie scene. Pulling from a wide array of musical influences from 60s-80s, The Green Orbs dish up a big scoop of surrealist silly (Monster Spray Parts I, II, and IIIFlower In My Shower) peppered with moments of heartfelt kid advice (Tips From Toby the Turtle, Twelve Steps to Eating Your Veggies) and story songs (Doug the Bug, Ruby the Tooth Fairy, Robert Broccoli, The Duck of Whistleburg). The record kicks off with its title track Thumb Wrestling Champions which echoes the concept of MTV’s Celebrity Death Match– if the wrestlers were only using their thumbs for combat! Musically the song has a definite 80s influence, reminiscent of The Buggles, Sparks, The Plimsouls, and Devo. But, as aforementioned, the album does not remain in that 80s sonic space, the musical influences shift from song to song and range from 80s to folksy to broadway theatrical to 50s/60s doo-wop. There is even a funny, driving, guitar-laden, Neil Young-esque song called Soup. The album, structurally speaking, is divided into three parts with each section punctuated by a faux advertising interstitial. Despite this, I wouldn’t call this record a concept album per se, however, you could safely say that this record was made possible by the generous support by the good people behind Monster Spray!”

MRJEFF2000 Reviews THUMB WRESTLING CHAMPIONS!

Thank you so much to MRJEFF2000 for his fun review of "THUMB WRESTLING CHAMPIONS!!

"The family band concept has existed forever. Most recently, the Oot 'n Oots feature four brothers and one of their daughters. Keeping in the sibling spirit is the brother and sister team The Green Orbs. Eddie RosenBerg III and Heather Hirshfield first decided to collaborate musically in 2015 for the YouTube Audio Library. Three years (and 50 songs) later, the duo have released their debut CD, THUMB WRESTLING CHAMPIONS.

While every family has their resident goofball, the Green Orbs divide the wackiness evenly. That way, Eddie can sing "Soup is the best food in the world" and Heather can belt the '60s Romper Room meets Shindig! romp, "The Suction Cup Shuffle.""

Rock Mommy interviews Heather!!!

Heather was recently interviewed for the blog Rock Mommy about our new album Thumb Wrestling Champions, and what it is like to be a rocking' mom! Here's a portion of the interview:

Rockmommy: I read a bit about how you and your brother got started — can you tell me about how your latest collection of songs came about? Was there an inspiring idea/theme?

Heather Hirshfield: Our new album “Thumb Wrestling Champions” is the end result after many, many years of work. We were just writing different fun songs over the years, until we realized we had enough for an album! There is no overarching theme, but many of the songs were inspired by my girls, either through stories that I told them when they were little, or by something that they may have said.

Thank you to My Crafty Zoo for this fun review of our new album........

"I sit here to review this disc, completely alone with no children. This should be interesting. The title song opens up with a fun 80’s technology beat and gets your head moving whether you want it to or not. It’s super fun to listen to, silly as can be and even makes me laugh without having any little ones being silly! There’s definitely some 80’s vibe going on, along with a bug ballad (that you’ll really want to listen to, I swear), and even the much needed As Seen On TV type commercial with a little diddy! I am for real loving this disc and can’t wait to share it with my niece! The lyrics are absolutely silly!"

JP's Music Blog reviews Thumb Wrestling Champions

An amazing review of our upcoming album "THUMB WRESTLING CHAMPIONS" by JP's Music Blog"! 

**The brother and sister duo of Eddie RosenBerg III and Heather Hirshfield are preparing to release their new album in September as The Green Orbs. The new release titled "Thumb Wrestling Champions" will become available on September 7th, and features 14-tracks that are all about having a good time. The album begins with the eighties, Devo-like delivery of the title song as they sing about what it takes to become the "Thumb Wrestling Champion." They slow the tempo down for the gentle, acoustic folk tale of "Doug The Bug," before delivering a commercial for "Monster Spray," which also pops up a couple more times on this new release. The Green Orbs continue with the story of "Ruby The Tooth Fairy," before closing their new album with the addictive waltz of "Robert Broccoli" and their mellow rock tribute to "Soup."**
