As I mentioned last week, Oklahoma Kindie Rockers, the SUGAR FREE ALLSTARS, are prepping to release what is perhaps the only true family music release for this Saturday's annual RECORD STORE DAY. "My Daddy's Record Collection" will be available as a limited-edition 7" vinyl single, and today the band has released a lyric video for the song.

Covered: LOCAL H performs "Team" by LORDE

Like most of you, I have not seen LOCAL H with new drummer, Ryan Harding. Well, until today. A video has surfaced in which LOCAL H performs a stellar cover of "Team," the recent hit by LORDE. It's a fantastic rendition that manages to infuse the low-key track with the kind of energy that LOCAL H first emerged with in the mid-90s. Check it out below...

Watch: MILKSHAKE takes their Kindie Groove back to 1975 in "Girls Wanna Dance"

MILKSHAKE's 2013 album, GOT A MINUTE? was a favorite hear upon release last year, and now the Baltimore-based Kindie rockers have released a new music video to go along with it. "Girls Wanna Dance" takes the kindie grooves back to 1975 - a time when live bands rocked-out in front of the kids for a truly memorable "school dance" experience. Check out the new video below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Baby Music: Lullaby Versions of FROZEN on the way - Hear "Let It Go" Now!

With the recent release of Walt Disney Animation Studios' Academy Award-winning mega-hit, FROZEN, on Blu-ray and DVD, you'd think that we'd be done talking about the land of Arendelle for a bit, unless there was some news about FROZEN 2, right? Well, not quite, as the spirit and music of this cultural phenomenon continues to inspire and evolve, and now the folks at Roma Music Group are prepping to pay tribute by re-working the now-iconic soundtrack for the youngest Olaf fans in your house. LULLABY VERSIONS OF FROZEN will hit Digital Retailers on April 29th, the latest release in the popular, and fast-growing Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star collection of pop culture lullabies. How does the lullaby version of "Let It Go" compare to the version made famous by Idina Menzel? Find out below...
