perrixmasCHRISTINA PERRI recently released A VERY MERRY PERRI CHRISTMAS, a six-song collection of new holiday recordings for 2012. "Let it Snow" is a holiday classic that doesn't appear on the new EP, but Christina recently performed the song in The Live Room for The Warner Sound. Recorded at The Fortress in Los Angeles, you can check out "Let it Snow" along with a bonus performance of her hit "A Thousand Years" below...

This is one of those that was a toss-up as to where to file it here on The Rock Father... not really "music for kids," but not just "for grownups" either. Since it's more of a track for rockin' families in general, I'm just putting the new video from the DROPKICK MURPHYS here in my blog. In fact, I think that going forward, any holiday music that's not specifically kid-centric will go in my blog instead of "news." You could say it's some "Housekeeping" in a way. In terms of the holidays, "The Season's Upon Us," and that just so happens to be the name of the DROPKICK MURPHYS' new single and video. Check it out!

Little PassportsThere have been a lot of cool "Monthly Subscription" activities popping up for kids lately, and one that just hit my radar here at Rock Father HQ is Little Passports. A perfect holiday gift idea that's both fun and educational, Little Passports delivers kids a package each month from "Sam and Sofia," a pair of characters that visit different states and countries, and then share their experiences. Inside each package is a collection of fun activities and souvenirs.

I don't cover much sports here on The Rock Father, so it's pretty fitting that when I do there has to be something rock involved. Case-in-point? NBA BALLER BEATS by Majesco Entertainment. This new video game for KINECT on XBOX 360 is sort of a rhythm game akin to ROCK BAND or GUITAR HERO, but one that uses real basketball skills - and a real ball - to keep the beat along with 30 songs from top artists in hip-hop, rock, and more. You've got music, you've got sports, and you're active while playing. Personally, I wanted to try this out myself, but since we do not yet have a Kinect here at Rock Father HQ, the folks at Majesco have agreed that I can hook up one lucky reader with a copy of the game - complete with an NBA Ball Replica from Spalding!

Los Angeles-based SUNSHINE COLLECTIVE have just released their contribution to the sonic holiday landscape with a new song called "The City That Forgot to Snow." Already available on iTunes (get it here), the new track also has a music video which can be viewed below. An email that landed here at Rock Father HQ tonight suggests that the song will strike listeners that enjoy the Christmas offerings from Michael Buble, Colbie Collait, or Diana Krall. Watch, listen, and see what you think below...
