About a year ago, ALEX MITNICK (the "Alex" from ALEX & THE KALEIDOSCOPE BAND) became a "Rock Father" himself, ushering in the birth of his son, Baby Miles. In celebration of his little one, Alex has written an entire album for him (and you!) called LOVE SONGS FOR MY BABY. Set for release this Father's Day (also the anniversary of this site), Alex is giving listeners an early taste with the release of the first single, "Feelin' Fine." Check out the beautiful video below, and keep reading for details on how you can help spread the music, and score a FREE DOWNLOAD for your own collection!

Where did 2013 go? People have long said that the years seem to pass faster as you get older, but 2013... this was something different. Never before has a year been as big a blur as this one. Maybe it's the fact that this is the year that Little Finley went mobile (started walking), creating a situation in which I'm chasing two kids around all day instead of just one. Perhaps its all the adventures we've been having, but honestly, I just don't know why it seems to have flown by so fast. So here we are, New Year's Eve... the last day of 2013, and we're standing on the cusp of 2014. Whatever you choose to do tonight, rock is needed, and thanks to my kindie punk rock friends, THE BOOGERS, you have a new track to add to your New Year's Eve playlist. Enjoy THE BOOGERS' rendition of "Auld Lang Syne" below, and download it if you'd like. Happy New Year!

125ntntIf it were say, 1985, and I were out at the mall Christmas shopping after catching a matinee screening of THE BREAKFAST CLUB, it's very likely that I would've heard something with a vibe similar to "The List" at some point in my travels. But this isn't '85, it's 2013... but that doesn't matter, because Portland-based NTNT (Ninja Turtle Ninja Tiger) has released "The List" as a holiday-flavored single that's being made available as a gift for you. Yes, just for you. Stream it below...
