VOLBEAT is one of those bands that has an interesting level of crossover appeal among rock and metal fans. You always run across people you wouldn't expect to dig 'em, yet they're all over 'em. Then again, I've run across several people that I figured would love some VOLBEAT, and they absolutely can't stand 'em. Me? I'm in the middle and find them to be overrated and overplayed around these parts (particularly their latest album), but I really like 2010's BEYOND HELL/ABOVE HEAVEN. If you dig 'em and want to introduce your baby to their music, the folks at Roma Music Group have a new collection out this week to help you do just that. Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star: LULLABY VERSIONS OF VOLBEAT hit iTunes today. Check out "Lola Montez" below, along with the full tracklisting and cover art.

The death of LOU REED saddened many earlier this Fall, with countless artists paying tribute immediately. As my social feeds lit up, one thing constantly mentioned was how future generations would one day discover Reed's music, and that of his time with THE VELVET UNDERGROUND. In that spirit, the folks at Roma Music Group have announced that they will bring to a close an extremely busy year with the release of LULLABY VERSIONS OF LOU REED and THE VELVET UNDERGROUND on December 17th as part of their popular TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR line of baby-friendly jams. A dozen songs from Reed's discography have been reworked into lush instrumentals, perfect for your smallest listener and their nursery. Pre-orders just went live on iTunes tonight, and I've got the premiere of "Perfect Day" below. Take a listen...

After dipping their toes into the Disney waters with the release of LULLABY VERSIONS OF THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS back in October, the crew over at Roma Music Group is gearing up to release Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star: LULLABY VERSIONS OF DISNEY CLASSICS on December 10th. This new collection features 18 songs made famous in movies like TOY STORY, THE LITTLE MERMAID, SNOW WHITE, CINDERELLA, and more. While the original songs were certainly kid-friendly from the get-go, these lullaby versions present them as mellow instrumentals perfect for your baby's nursery. Pre-orders are up on iTunes right now, with "When You Wish Upon a Star" as an instant download. Preview that track, and check out the tracklisting below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

pjboard125The second PAJANIMALS item to make my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide here on The Rock Father (see the first here), the Pajanimals Bedtime Routine Board by TOMY features all four Pajanimals - Apollo, Squacky, Sweetpea Sue and Cowbella - each paired with a corresponding nighttime activity: Taking a Bath; Putting on Pajamas; Brushing Teeth; Reading a Story. Once each task is complete, slide the character into bed for a musical jingle. When they're all tucked in, the full "Lullaby" theme song will play while accompanied by glowing lights.

pajanimals125Jim Henson's PAJANIMALS have been a beloved part of our bedtime routine here at Rock Father HQ ever since we first started seeing them on Sprout. Now, with Saturday morning appearances on NBC Kids, the Pajanimals crew are becoming increasingly familiar to a growing audience of kids and their grownups. One of the new items from TOMY's Pajanimals line is the APOLLO GOODNIGHT PROJECTOR, a perfect gift idea for ages Birth+, and an entry into my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide here on The Rock Father.
