The Whizpops “Ranger Rick’s Trail Mix Vol. 1” perfectly balances fun melodies, danceable grooves, and educational messages to create an album the whole family can enjoy.
This month, Danny released a new self-titled album from his own “Red Pants Band”. The whole family LOVED Danny’s previous album, “No School Today”, so we were anxious to give this one a listen. If you like Danny Weinkauf, They Might Be Giants, or perfectly melodic infectiously peppy rock with an occasional clever educational twist, “Red Pants Band” is the album for you!
Imagine the B-52s crossed with Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters and Mork from Ork – that’s Lard Dog and the Band of Shy. L.A.R.D. is short for “Life’s a real dream” and is the imaginative creation of artist Steven Erdman.
Renee and Friends “Simpatico” is melodic convergence of singer Renee Stahl (Renee and Jeremy) and an impressive collection of well-known artists such as Lisa Loeb, Maya Rudolph, and Glen Phillips. As demonstrated in Renee and Friend’s latest video for “You Were Meant To Be” (one of our favorite songs on the album), “Simpatico” is an album of soft wonder and quiet bliss.
Frances England’s new “Explorer of the World” is one of the most consistently brilliant and beautiful albums of 2016. This album is the soundtrack to the adventures you want to take.
First there were tornadoes. Then there were Sharknadoes. And now, Oklahoma City’s own Sugar Free Allstars new self-titled album is a symphonic funknado that will pick up your family and send them spinning!
Rocksteady is funkified fusion of ska, reggae, punk, and rock rhythms layered with blazing horns, resounding organs, grooving guitars, insane drums, and happy voices all focused on getting you to “shake your Tailfeather”. In short, Rocksteady is AWESOME.
With a bright spirit, Smiles Ahead is both a wonderful introduction to the “Kindie” genre while still offering something new for the established “Kindie” fans. Smiles Ahead delivers on its promise of bringing smiles to everyone in your family.
Tim Kubart’s new album, Home, is a reflection of his pop spirit – fun, melodic, upbeat and always trying, sometimes a little too hard, to bring a smile n’ groove to his audience.
