Play Hard. Rock Hard. So says the tagline on FATHER GOOSE’s official website, and that’s something I can definitely get behind. Now, “The King of the Dance Party” has released a Caribbean-flavored new family album, BASHMENT TIME (Amazon | iTunes) – and some stellar guests from around the Kindie world are along for the ride. DAN ZANES lends his voice to the opening track, a reworking of the traditional American folk song “Constant Sorrow,” while JOANIE LEEDS provides vocals for “A Who?,” and JOSH AND THE JAMTONES join the action for a cover of “Iko, Iko.” Stream the full album below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER.

“My musical life would have turned out much differently if I hadn’t met Father Goose back in the 1990’s. When we started making music together I knew that we were on to something fresh, something that felt like the world I experienced when I walked out onto the streets of Brooklyn. He’s a bottomless well of free spirited musical ideas grounded in Jamaican traditions but flying in and around the mysteries that all young people know. In a perfect world Father Goose would wake up every day to an enthusiastic crowd cheering and hollering outside his window. That’s what he deserves and I know that that’s what he inspires in families around the world. I hope that this new album finds it’s way into the lives of all families everywhere. There’s nothing like the music of Father Goose and the release of ‘Bashment Time’ is definitely a cause for an outbreak of all-ages dance parties here, there, and everywhere.”Dan Zanes
