Baby Ocho- and the whimsical love song "Penny Pebble" from the "Dumb Muscles" album

Baby Ocho is the musical project / private therapy sessions (I confess I threw the therapy line in) of singer songwriter Mateusz Serafin out of Indianapolis via Central Illinois. The little ditty Penny Pebble from his album "Dumb Muscles" moves like a quick but leisurely car ride through country roads. Told from the point of view of a stray penny with feelings it is in the end a love song. It is cool and adorable but more than that when in context of the entire album feels poetic and deep.  Mateusz says that the songs on "Dumb Muscles" draws it's themes from unreplied text messages, missing old friends, turning 30, trying to be a good husband and the crushing weight of responsibility. Oh, and I added the "crushing" part. Yes, this is all so easy to relate to and in that way totally endearing. Check out Baby Ocho and show him some love.
