As always, you're gonna need a soundtrack, and following tradition,...

Oklahoma City's SUGAR FREE ALLSTARS are one of my favorite bands lighting up the Kindie Scene, providing some true family-friendly funk jams that legitimately ROCK. On April 2, SFAs' Boom! (aka Chris Wiser) and Dr. Rock (aka Rob Martin) are back with a new, self-titled album of fresh jams that draw inspiration from Parliament Funkadelic, early ‘80s Prince, old-school rap, Deep...

This week comes the release of the debut album from MICHAEL & THE ROCKNESS MONSTERS, a new project from Michael Napolitano, founder of the Preschool of Rock. Napolitano states that he "allowed himself more freedom with...
It's President's Day, and aside from being a day off school, possibly work, and a time to get great, limited-time savings on electronics, furniture and automobile purchases, it's also a day to remember the heritage of our Nation - The United States of America. One of my favorite cities has long-been Washington, D.C., and for their forthcoming album, ARE...
Last October, I introduced you to SHARKY SHARKY, a guitar-heavy Kindie (perhaps, Kindie Metal) band out of Aberdeen, Scotland. This family-friendly offshoot of UK Power Metallers, ASCENSION is back on the attack, presenting their first-ever music video... the appropriately-titled "Bring the Rock!" I approve of this mission, and that's why I'm sharing their new video with you today. See it, and learn...
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, the season of love and friendship will soon be here, and this year it's got a brand-new soundtrack.
