Serengeti’s other release from 2006 is Noodle Arm Whimsy. Whimsy is THE essential Serengeti album. It doesn’t define the music Cohn is making today, but the vibe from this album is funny, interesting, and honest. Lots of skits and fantasy songs, like Tanning Season and Trophy Husband, and some songs to make you think, like Benji and Whimsy Cards. My roommate heard about this album on a MF DOOM forum, and was annoying the rest of the house by singing off-key to the hook of Seven Minutes:

“She wrote short stories about a monster in a jar. Whose always looked at as an allegory for being alone”
This whole album is fun, and dude. There’s even a reference to Spicoli:
