Christmas is less than a week away and some folks will still be looking for gifts. I highly recommend the gift of music for your kids from the kindie world. While I am always biased for the Poochamungas if your reading this your probably already a fan. Fortunately there is a lot of great kindie rock music for kids these days. Here is a link to my top ten for this year. Also recent post about Istvan and his Imaginary Band, Human Tim/Robot Tim, Songs I wish I had written and the many other artists talked about on here during the year. If you have just started reading here awhile back I posted about some CD’s to get you started on a path of excellent kindie music. Here they are with some updates
Grenadilla – Grenadilla This is a fantastic vocal journey that amazes me to this day. The whole album is full of happiness and joy. This is the hidden gem of the bunch. One of the best CD’s I have ever heard. The are re-releasing it with new CD art!
The Boogers- Let’s Go. If Punk Rock is your thing you and your kids will be rocking for hours with this one. The best at what they do…. This year they released Extractum Victoris which has my all time favorite Booger song’s Pandas are Dangerous.
Justin Roberts – Pop Fly. There’s a reason why he was Grammy nominated for Recess this year. Still Pop Fly is our fav and filled with great, tight pop songs.
The Verve Pipe – A Family Album. This is the best kindie CD ever made. Just great songs and a great band. Great stuff! Haven’t had a chance to listen to their newest CD but the few songs I have off of Are We There Yet? have been excellent,
Okee Dokee Brothers – Take it Outside. Who knew bluegrass made for such great family music? The Okee Dokee Brothers did and this CD is pure energy!… They followed this up with the Grammy winning Can You Canoe? One of the best kids CD’s ever
The Hipwaders – The Golden State. Nothing new this year but this is one the best CD’s ever released with a great California pop sound and lyrically sharp. It’s for the whole family.
So that concludes a few of the CD’s I think great music gifts for the holidays. Go support your local kindie artist and buy some today!
