Dino 5

I was excited to chance upon this post tonight!

Producer Prince Paul teamed up with some of the high-class emcees in the game to put together this Hip-Hop album for kids, with the obligatory educational twist. And before I do too much talking again, I’ll just link you up to some of the relevant places.

Baby Loves Hip Hop:
The Dino 5:

While you’re at it, watch the video for the “Dino 5 Theme” below.

Although the album really is made for kids, it’s still very listenable, even to the trained ear.

J-Marimba Ponies

Insane! Check out this music group comprising of 10 young percussionists ranging from 4 to 12 years in age. The primary objective of the group is to foster goodwill and friendship through the universal language of music. No conductors or music sheets are used by the Marimba Ponies. The music is memorized completely and flows out of their own individual rhythms and emotions.

Low – Family Tree

Here’s an animated clip fom my son’s favourite tv show Yo Gabba Gabba. The song is “Family Tree” and is performed by the usually sombre masters of dark and light, Low, the three piece from Duluth, Minnesota. I saw this band recently in Sydney and Ange dared me to call out for this tune as an encore. Suffice to say, it probably wouldn’t have fit into the set that night at all. Enjoy the clip.


Here’s a photo of Alan & Mimi of Low I snapped that night.

Musical Toys and Cut-Up Records from Twink

Mike Langile aka Twink is a musician/magician from Boston MA who bends childrens music through many twists and turns via his large collection of toy instruments and cut up recordings of hundreds of children’s LP’s. Ranging from cartoonesque silliness to classical leanings and wacked out electronica, Twink collaborates with other artists such as Ergo Phizmiz, Adja the Turkish Queen and countless others making a myriad or merry music along the way. His website has many MP3’s to enjoy (enough to fill a cd) and has a great gallery of the many toy instruments in his collection.

I can especially recommend this cd from Twink – it’s a total trip, but my boy seemed to love it when we played it to him. All Twink cd’s are available via his website.

Janglebug Podcast #1 – Wouldn’t It Be Nice

Here is the first of our podcasts for kids and babies (and parents of course). We love music – it is a huge part of our lives and our baby boy has responded to it in a big way as well. Upon searching the web and my own cd collection, I have realized there is a vast array of great kids music being made that doesn’t turn your stomach when you are forced to hear it over and over again. These podcasts will hopefully expose some of those tunes to you and relieve you of the run of the mill fare that is usually found in the major music stores.

The first in the series features Franz Ferdinand, The Free Design, Robert Crumb (!), Johnathan Richman and many more – enjoy it with your kids today.
