Every song on “Best of Hullabaloo: Volume Two” is a great country song that will be a joy to listen to on your April vacation road trip. The new album, which dropped Feb. 24, was culled by Steve Denyes and Brendan Kremer from their last five discs. Time flies when you’re having fun and playing folk music, which this duo has been doing for 13 years, 13 albums, and 3,000 shows. Whether they are singing from the perspective of man’s best friend in “Dog’s Song,” or rooting around for sustenance in a car seat in “I’m Hungry,” or reassuring a listener with the message, “You might be different, but you’re not alone,” in “I Wear Pink,” Hullabaloo’s music is full of humor, positive messages, and an infectious exuberance. A tear might even spring to your eye with the a cappella “You Are Loved” lullaby. Hullabaloo is at the top of their game, but it’s their fans who are winning.
