Quantcast

HAPPY WAGS, the kindie project from THE AGGROLITES' Jesse Wagner, has staked a June 24, 2014 release date for their debut self-titled album. After The Aggrolites had a big hit on YO GABBA GABBA with "Banana" some years back, Wagner had been kicking around ideas for a children's album, and after releasing some singles over the past few years, the Fun Fun Records arm of Mike Park's Asian Man Records will bring HAPPY WAGS to the masses. Check out the new track, "Use Your Words," below... along with a few other goodies...

On May 13, Minneapolis duo KOO KOO KANGA ROO will serve up a new slice of family-friendly sonic enjoyment when WHOOPTY WHOOP hits the streets via the Fun Fun Records imprint of Mike Park's Asian Man Records - pretty appropriate since Koo Koo Kanga Roo is all about FUN! Check out the cover art and tracklisting, along with the hot and fresh video for the first single, "Fanny Pack," below.

Kepi Ghoulie - KEPI FOR KIDS (Album Review)

There's been a shortage of legit rock for kids being released lately, an unfortunate fact that could certainly bring a tear to this man's eye - especially seeing as the name of my site is The Rock Father. While there's been no shortage of great music for kids and families (quite the opposite, actually), the drought on the rock note came to an end this week, due in large part to a pair of releases from Fun Fun Records, a new children's imprint of Mike Park's Asian Man Records. The first of those albums? KEPI GHOULIE's KEPI FOR KIDS.

It's Monday, October 1, 2012 and that means it's time for The Rock Father's 31 Days of Halloween! Each day for the entire month of October, I'll be publishing a featured post that highlights something seasonally-appropriate. The list has already been chosen (though there might be "bonus" posts along the way) to be a spooky mix of music, movies, toys, food, and more. To get things started, here's the new video from PLAY DATE, a new kindie rock collaboration between Shanti Wintergate and Greg Attonito (The Bouncing Souls). Are you ready to "Dance Like A Monster"?

With only 51 Days until Halloween, the Seasonal Songs are starting to creep out, one of which is "Dance Like a Monster" from PLAY DATE. Featured on their forthcoming album, IMAGINATION (out October 9 on Fun Fun Records), "Dance Like a Monster" features an appearance by The Ghouligans, and will have a full-length music video released very soon. In the meantime, check out a short preview below...

So you think that kid's music can't rock? Well you're wrong, and here's another example of why...

Get ready for FUN FUN RECORDS, a new label from Asian Man's MIKE PARK (check out my review of his SMILE album from last fall) that's launching armed with family friendly tunes from members of the BOUNCING SOULS. THE AGGROLITES, the GROOVIE GHOULIES and more. How about a FREE Sampler?
