Thu, 01 May 2014 08:46:29 +00002014-05-01T08:46:29Z

If nothing else, Kindie Rock is always looking to improve itself. Two areas that have historically been lacking in the genre are high quality live albums and hip hop CDs. Well, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo covered both needs with one fell swoop when he released Live at the Orange Peel back in November 2013.

Happy Earth Day 2014!

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 05:53:54 +00002014-04-22T05:53:54Z

Happy Earth Day, everyone! There are lots of kids' songs that celebrate and encourage ecology and environmental thoughtfulness, but a few immediately come to mind. Uncle Rock's "Garbage Barge" and "There Is No Away," from his 2010 album The Big Picture, discuss the fact that trash doesn't simply disappear, while Dog On Fleas' "Water Planet," from 2008's Beautiful World, describes the beauty of Earth from an extraterrestrial's point of view. Plant a tree!

Greatest Fab 4 Lullaby Album?

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 08:51:56 +00002014-04-08T08:51:56Z

(image)

There are tons of CDs full of sleepytime versions of songs by The Beatles, but the hands-down best Beatles lullaby album is Jason Falkner's Bedtime with The Beatles.

Falkner has been a member of Jellyfish, The Grays, and The Three O'Clock, and has collaborated with Eric Matthews; all of those projects were dedicated to perfecting the pop song via lush, over-the-top production. For his 2001 album Bedtime with The Beatles, however, Falkner reeled in his bombastic tendencies and created quiet, tender, sweet instrumental versions of Fab Four tunes that melded his unique style with Beatles song craft.
