ONE TRACK MIND: Milkshake “Baltimore”

Last summer, we saw a lot of Baltimore. Okay, to be completely factual here, we saw a little of Baltimore, a lot. You see, geographically speaking, Baltimore is located along the semi-straight line that is the route between our home in Southeastern PA and Washington D.C., and our nation’s capital […]

ONE TRACK MIND: Astrograss “The Colored Pencil Factory”

ASTROGRASS “THE COLORED PENCIL FACTORY” After all these years, I still have a serious soft spot for The Jayhawks’ albums Tomorrow The Green Grass and Hollywood Town Hall.  As such, I have a tendency to gravitate positively to any song or album — kindie or otherwise — that manages to […]

ONE TRACK MIND: We Kids Rock “Stink Bug”

WE KIDS ROCK “STINK BUG” “Stink Bug” isn’t the best of the five songs on the impressive new We Kids Rock “5 Songs…” EP, but with temperatures hovering at or near 60 degrees as the non-exactly-a-real-winter thaw begins in earnest here on the Eastern seaboard, the critters who didn’t seem […]

ONE TRACK MIND: Recess Monkey & Sugar Free Allstars “Working Together”

I loves me some kindie collaborations, and while this new one between two of the funkier rock-n-roll outfits for tots lays on the message a bit too thick for my tastes, it is still a pretty damn good tune. The OK City drums-n-organ duo Sugar Free Allstars picked Seattle’s Recess […]

ONE TRACK MIND (+ Free Download): Mr. Richard and the Pound Hounds “Garbage Man”

MR. RICHARD AND THE POUND HOUNDS “GARBAGE MAN” If you’re anything like me, you can easily envision a tune with that title by a band with that name being a crude blues song. But get your head out of the trashcan, son, this is kid’s music. Geesh. 😉 I had […]

ONE TRACK MIND: In The Nick Of Time “In The Nick Of Time”

IN THE NICK OF TIME “IN THE NICK OF TIME” You don’t hear a whole heck of a lot of U2 in kid’s music, but In The Nick Of Time’s self-titled arena rocker brings a little bit of Bono’s grandeur to music made for children.  It doesn’t hurt that the […]

ONE TRACK MIND: Banana Slug String Band “Turtle Ate A Jelly”

BANANA SLUG STRING BAND “TURTLE ATE A JELLY” When do I post about educational message songs?  Hardly ever, actually.  But when the music is as good as it is on “Turtle Ate A Jelly” I make an exception. Plus, I freakin’ hate plastic bags. This Caribbean island joint from the […]

ONE TRACK MIND (Halloween Edition): Stephen Shaskan “Down By The Graves”

Other than Barney Saltzberg, there’s not a whole lot of quality crossover between the worlds of kid’s lit and kid’s music. Little did I know, when I reviewed his fantastic debut kid’s book A Dog is a Dog, that author Stephen Shaskan is also a children’s recording artist. His songs, […]
