Todd McHatton – “Galactic Champions of Joy” Kid’s CD Review

TODD MCHATTON “GALACTIC CHAMPIONS OF JOY” I sloppily made out with “Sundays at the Rocket Park”, McHatton’s last album, during a torrid affair in 2010 but I want to elope in the middle of the night in Vegas with “Galactic Champions of Joy”. I’m filled with that level of poor-decision-making […]

THE JIMMIES “PRACTICALLY RIDICULOUS” Was the wait worth it?

Dan Zanes & Friends – “Little Nut Tree” Kid’s CD Review

DAN ZANES “LITTLE NUT TREE” “Wonder Wheel” is the quintessential Dan Zanes song; as jubilant as a campfire sing-along, as memorable as an up-too-late Friday night with great friends, and loaded with imagery so specific in its 1st person experience yet also with an open slot for your own memories […]

Caspar Babypants – “Sing Along!” Kid’s Music CD Review

Chris Ballew is back with another set of stripped down toddler tunes under his playful Caspar Babypants monikor.

Sunshine Collective – Wanna Play? Kid’s CD Mini Review

SUNSHINE COLLECTIVE “WANNA PLAY?” A tale of two halves.  Graceful radio-friendly pop rock for the whole family with charm from the moment the needle drops to the closing hiss and crackle even though the stickiness of the songs fades a bit midway through.  The Bear and Mouse are glued to […]
