ORANGE SHERBET's DELICIOUS is a cool record. That was my response after listening to the title track and album opener of the new album from this San Francisco Bay Area trio. Set for release on May 15th, the little one and I have been spinning DELICIOUS here at Rock Father HQ for a couple of months already, but I wanted to wait until we were closer to release date to post any thoughts on it. The reason? So that you'd remember to buy it. DELICIOUS is tasty.

The opening track on WORLD OF WONDER, the latest album from ALISON FAITH LEVY had me scared for a few seconds of it's 0:56 runtime. Something about ''Reach for the Sky'' struck me as the set-up for the kind of over-folk, pop-cheese that a lot of parents associate with family music, and I personally try to avoid. Fortunately, this 'intro' track was just a lead-in, and when it got to the words ''Now Let's Rock!," I was able to breathe a sigh of relief and wipe the sweat from my brow. Having missed out on Levy's previous band, the SIPPY CUPS, my expectations were wide open. So let's take a listen to some of the best tracks...

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?

BABIES 'R' US recently announced a new partnership with HEIDI KLUM to create a new collection of ''affordable luxuries for little ones.'' Truly Scrumptious by Heidi Klum, will be available in all Babies“R”Us stores across North America and online at Babiesrus.com beginning this Fall. My wife being the huge PROJECT RUNWAY fan, she's very excited about this. Here's a little bit of what you can expect from this new product line...
