The Hipwaders’ first CD was a quick little EP that I loved for its edgy sound. And now, with their new full-length CD, The Golden State, my favorite song pairs the sweetest lyrics with a chorus that makes me want to grab the nearest sticky hands and jump around the room for a few minutes.

Hey, Josie! is a kind-hearted ode about a baby coming in for show-and-tell, but it’s also a song packed with little surprises like a happy little Beach Boys-esque “ba-pa-ba” harmony tucked in after the rousing chorus.

Super-intelligent verse will have younger kids asking what “altruism” means while the simple five-word chorus Hey Josie, baby come on will just get everyone out of their seats. Or, at least nodding their heads enthusiastically on these hot summer days. –Christina
