>Kindie Rock Is Awesome


In the Los Angeles Times this weekend, there was an article about indie music for the under-10 set, dubbed “kindie rock,” which sparked my interest, because I’ve always looked for songs that both my daughter and I could listen to in the car. We’ve seen bands like Milkshake perform, and we watch “Yo Gabba Gabba” religiously, so I wasn’t surprised to find that the article read like a description of our family.

Needless to say, I was really excited to hear that bands like The Shins and The Roots were going to be featured on the new Yo Gabba Gabba CD, which I downloaded for my daughter – and, lets be honest, for me too.

Now, we can rock out to “Party in My Tummy” and “Get the Sillies Out” mixed with The Shins’ version of “It’s Okay, Try Again,” and my favorite, Mark Kozelek’s “Bedtime Lullaby.”

For parents who don’t want to sing to The Wiggles or are sick of the Backyardigan’s theme song, kindie rock is a win win.

Buy the CD on Amazon.com
