I gotta say - I wasn't sure if I should file this one under "Toys & Games" or "Family Music," and the reason is that it's both. On the surface we have an announcement that Baconstein is coming - a "plush posable action figure" that will become available this Friday. But then we have the fact that Baconstein is the nemesis of Gustafer Yellowgold, who has a new record coming out... also this Friday. Check out a commercial for this delicious-looking figure below...

You might know him as the bassist for Seattle's GRAMMY-nominated Recess Monkey, or perhaps as the host of "Live From the Monkey House" on SiriusXM's Kids Place Live. Now, Jack Forman is stepping out on his own with "Songs from the Monkey House," his first-ever solo album, available as an Amazon Original on September 29, 2017. Featuring a dozen songs that families will love (there's one that Star Wars fans are really gonna dig), today THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine is hosting the world premiere of the lead-off track, "Dog Park" - a song written and performed from the perspective of a canine. Crank it up!

Music Video Debut: Red Yarn - "Mockingbird"

When it comes to family music, one of the most unique artists in the genre comes to us from Portland. Red Yarn has been spinning his sonic tale for a few years now, blending his vibrant brand of folk-infused Americana with a live show that features puppetry and storytelling. Now, with the release of his latest album, Born in the Deep Woods, Red Yarn completes his Deep Woods Trilogy, "an epic song cycle exploring the roots and branches of American folk music." Today, I'm happy to share the new video for "Mockingbird," a beautiful clip that includes Red Yarn rocking out with his 3-year-old son. I dig it, and think you will too. Check it out!
