First single "I Am a Scientist" finds indie pop duo Mates of State offering their quirky, charming take on the Guided by Voices song, while indie folk children's musician Frances England floats in space to the tune of "Goldilocks Zone" the term for the area around a star where a planet could theoretically sustain life and Renee & Jeremy pay tribute via ukulele to the pioneering physicist and chemist on "Madame Curie," while selections like Pistolera side project Moona Luna's "H2O" and MC Fireworks with Secret Agent 23 Skidoo's "Rocket Science" expand the overarching indie rock/pop sound with Latin pop and hip-hop, respectively. From fossils to phytoplankton to Werner Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, Science Fair touches on a wide range of topics that will get young listeners excited about exploring the world around them, and grown-ups just may find themselves humming along, too.
