Nick Jr.'s Yo Gabba Gabba! isn't a typical kiddie fare and anyone that's into music should know that by now, and it's not just those oddly appealing monsters and robots like the Gary Baseman-esque Muno. The show--co-created by Huntington Beach resident/Aquabats lead singer Christian Jacobs, by the way--has featured surprisingly hip bands so many times that it's really not surprising any more. Among the names: the Roots, Of Montreal, Mates of States, the Shins, Hot Hot Heat, Chromeo and Mark Mothersbaugh; all performing absolutely kid-friendly yet not strictly "kiddie" tunes.
Several of those acts are on the upcoming Music Is Awesome! a compilation, a soundtrack featuring some Gabba's best performances due out on October 20. Track listing, courtesy Pitchfork, after the jump.
