On May 14, family music superstar DEAN JONES will release his much-anticipated solo album, WHEN THE WORLD WAS NEW. The mastermind behind DOG ON FLEAS, Jones is currently experiencing a banner year, having produced THE OKEE DOKEE BROTHERS' recent GRAMMY winner, CAN YOU CANOE? along with albums from RECESS MONKEY, ELIZABETH MITCHELL, JOANIE LEEDS and more. On WHEN THE WORLD WAS NEW, the go-to Kindie Rock producer and guest musician steps into the spotlight, and to celebrate it's release, THE ROCK FATHER is getting one grownup hooked up with a copy of the new record and DOG ON FLEAS' recent INVISIBLE FRIENDS to share with their children!

RECESS MONKEY are just over a month out from the release of their new album, DEEP SEA DIVER (full details posted previously on The Rock Father), and today comes the fantastic first music video from the new, nautically-themed collection. The clip debuted a little bit ago via Red Tricycle (in a post written by Jeff from OWTK), but you can rock it right here, right now...

Seattle Kindie Rockers RECESS MONKEY are going deep with their new album. DEEP SEA DIVER (June 18, Monkey Mama) is being called their "Blue Album," an ocean-themed effort "set in a submarine that plumbs the musical depths of the sea before becoming shipwrecked on the beach of a distant lost island." I've listened to a few tracks already, and I'm diggin' it.

Ladies and Gentlemen, THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA have issued a special message for rock-minded citizens of the World. Currently on the road with a string of dates in their "PUSA Plays The Good One" Tour (playing their multi-platinum 1995 debut album in it's entirety), the band has decided to reward fans with a special live album released via Noisetrade. Featuring five acoustic jams and four full-blown electric tracks, GET BACK IN THE VAN can be downloaded via this link or the widget below. While it is a FREE DOWNLOAD, you can help give The Presidents' some gas money by adding a "Tip" to their virtual jar.

DEAN JONES is everywhere these days. The DOG ON FLEAS mainman has become what I've likened to "the 1990s Puff Daddy of the family music scene - all up on everyone's albums and/or tracks." He's either prolific, or just a workaholic - having produced THE OKEE DOKEE BROTHERS' recent GRAMMY winner, CAN YOU CANOE? along with albums from RECESS MONKEY, ELIZABETH MITCHELL, and more in the pipeline (like the new JOANIE LEEDS album). Somewhere in between, Jones found time to record a solo album entitled WHEN THE WORLD WAS NEW, and on May 14th it will be unleashed upon the masses.

Last week, I reviewed "Gaia She Knows," the new single from THE HIPWADERS, right here on The Rock Father. While the focus of that release (available digitally, and in the archaic "compact disc" format) is the title track in two versions, the inclusion of a fresh version of "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" as the B-side makes it an Easter 2013 must-have. In just seven days, a six-foot anthropomorphic rabbit will be making his way across the land, dropping off baskets full of Easter joy - but you don't have to wait until then for some Easter rock... THE HIPWADERS are making "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" available as a FREE DOWNLOAD for the next week! Stream it below, then grab it from their Soundcloud page...
