Doesn't Anyone Sing Silent Night Any More?!?

My children have their Christmas musical extravaganza this weekend -- they have been practicing for weeks. A while back, they came home with a little booklet of lyrics and directions for how to download the songs from iTunes, if we wanted to practice...

Music Review: Yellow Fever

While they're name isn't exactly uplifting, the Austin-based trio, Yellow Fever, make grown-up music that's totally child-friendly. I bumped into the band late Saturday night at a show that was otherwise dominated by pretentious indie kids, and was i...

CD Review: Yesterday Was Dramatic, Today is OK, by Mum

Ok, so this is kind of cheating. Mum technically makes music for grown-ups, but their brand of lo-fi, emotionally-charged techno-pop has recently become living-room-dance-floor fodder for my 2 year-old and I, so I thought I'd share. Well, most of i...

Music Review: The Telephone Company

Blogging Baby Music Review: See You on The Moon (Indie Rock for Kids)

I know shamefully little about the kind of music that kids supposedly like, or rather the industry of crappy music that has sprung up to take advantage of parents who think that music for kids needs to be created by aging hippies with rudimentary gui...

Music for kids: sharing playlists

I had some free time this afternoon so I organized and updated my kids' music library on iTunes. I also made them a new playlist of songs to listen to while we craft or play. I'm happy to share to my playlist with you: Big Rock Candy Mountains&md...
