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!

I've been writing about The Bunny The Bear for ages - so long that some of the writings were lost on sites that pre-date this one, though my first mention of the band here as "The Rock Father" dates back to 2011. One thing that particularly resonates (and is always reinforced thanks to social media) is that TBTB frontman Matthew Tybor became a "Rock Father" himself at almost the same time that I did - his son and my oldest daughter being the same age. In those years there has been some personal struggle, and for Tybor, the situation has at points been more dire. Those life experiences have shaped the band's latest album, The Way We Rust, and the new single, "I Am Free," is a prime example. Check out the new video and some background below...

New York's IKILLYA have been tearing it up for some years now, and this week comes official word that they've signed to Urban Yeti Records for the June 2, 2017 release of their third full-length album, War For An Idea. The new album comes after a relentless touring cycle for their previous album, one that saw the band visit and perform in four countries and nearly all of the lower 48 states. The first single for the new record is a timely track called "Your God," and the video first made its debut yesterday via MetalSucks. Check it out below, and visit the Urban Yeti store for pre-order packages.

As many of you likely know from reading this website, being nicknamed "The Rock Father" comes from my long-standing ties to the music world. I still direct/edit the occasional music video, and this weekend there's a new one to share - "Revolution of Destruction" by PRODUCT OF HATE.  The song comes from their Napalm Records debut album, Buried in Violence, and is tied to the one-year anniversary of that album's release. Check it out below...
