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...

MIKE PARK - SMILE (Kids Music Review)

As the founder of Asian Man RecordsMike Park has become a fixture in the independent music scene, having released records from ALKALINE TRIO, SMOKING POPES, and many more. He's also been known to release some of his own music from time to time, and as a Rock Father of two himself - Park's latest release sets sights on the world of children's music. Released this past August, SMILE is a 12-track collection of original songs for the little ones, personally approved by Park's own son and daughter (3 & 5, I believe).
