THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Listen: "Glycerine" from LULLABY VERSIONS OF BUSH by Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star...

While the folks at Roma Music Group already have LULLABY VERSIONS OF SOUNDGARDEN hitting the streets this Tuesday as part of their TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR line, they've actually got another EP ready for the nursery that I'd overlooked - LULLABY VERSIONS OF BUSH (Amazon | iTunes). Yes, Gavin Rossdale and the gang are getting six of their most popular hits reworked into nursery-friendly jams for baby. Come to think of it, Rossdale's a father of four and his wife was already lullabied back in 2011 with TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR: LULLABY VERSIONS OF GWEN STEFANI AND NO DOUBT. Preview "Glycerine" below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Debut: THE POP UPS - "Block House" #10Songs10Days #AppetiteForConstruction

This Tuesday, August 19, Brooklyn kindie stars THE POP UPS will release APPETITE FOR CONSTRUCTION (pre-order: Amazon | iTunes), their third full-length effort, and the follow-up to 2012's excellent, GRAMMY-nominated RADIO JUNGLE (reviewed here). To mark the impending release, THE POP UPS have partnered with THE ROCK FATHER to debut "Block House" as part of their #10Songs10Days promotion. With a deliciously-80s synth-pop groove, "Block House" is a celebration of building a mighty tower of alphabet blocks - a time-honored tradition for kids everywhere. The third track on the album itself, "Block House" fits perfectly into a collection of songs that are "dedicated to the simple joy of making things with family and friends." Stream it below...
