Correction: Baby Baby LP April 1: “Bad Brains & Kings Of Leon had a baby styled by In Living Color, raised by Lamar of Revenge Of The Nerds”

Atlanta's Baby Baby share track and video at Impose

New LP due April 1 (not a joke)

Baby Baby - "Keep On Dancin' " via Impose 

“Catchy, fun, and totally chaotic …canned optimism of the Andrew WK variety.” –

“What with Mike D busy getting photographed by the New York Times in his well-appointed Brooklyn town house, someone had to pick up the “Fight For Your Right (to Party)” mantle, or watch the whole enterprise given over to self-seriousness and poise. Enter Atlanta quintetBaby Baby, the perfect men for the job. Channeling the Beastie Boyʼs silly irreverence and party-rockinʼ spirit, Baby Baby blend pop/punk songwriting with a hip-hop swagger and an emphasis on the live experience, which is something akin to the party scene in a teen movie, only everyone there can drink, and the partyʼs actually fun.
Baby Baby convened in the summer of 2009, when singer/guitarist Fontez Brooks and drummer Grant Wallace shook off the sleepiness of the suburbs and set out to bring a new element to the Atlanta scene. Packed with unfriendly, broody artists, hostile hardcore kids and the strip-club rap scene on the creepy fringes, The A simply needed some fun rock. And thatʼs what Baby Baby — which has since expanded to include percussionist Colin Boddy, bassist Kyle Dobbs and Ryan Burruss on keys — delivers on their sophomore album, Big Boy Baller Club, the follow-up to 2011ʼs Money, out April 1 on the Gospel of Rhythm Recordings.
Baby Baby is a big, inclusive tent. Thereʼs room under it for friends, foes, Nickleback fans, even haters; we all need someone to keep us in check, donʼt we? All they ask is that you come ready to dance and make some new friends on the floor. Theyʼll take care of the rest.”
Bio by Rachel Bailey

“...Bad Brains and Kings Of Leon had a baby that was styled by In Living Colour and was raised by Lamar of Revenge Of The Nerds...” – Clark Westfield of The Gay Blade

“...vocals like an inebriated Louis Armstrong then switching gears, and delving into a soulful, yet eccentric, singing style that brings to mind fellow Georgian Andre 3000..." – Performer

"Southern sons of the strong and the brave, Baby Baby carve out their own templates, have little to no use for tags, labels, genres, and run through the songbooks and workbooks of structures that they enjoy as quick as they discard them to kick out some real infectious noise." - Impose
