I was inspired to find more gown-up style kids’ music after the positive feedback on the post about For the Kids. I didn’t have to go very far to find the band Milkshake who releases a brand new CD (their fourth) today! They offered us a CD to review and we jumped at the chance to hear the sounds of a rock band turned kids’ music band.
We got the CD on our way out the door to the grocery store. Now that we live in rural Tennessee, a drive to the grocery store and back was enough time to hear almost the entire CD. We danced, bopped our heads and even chimed in on the chorus of a couple songs that were pretty easy to learn. I think my favorite part of the initial listen was the first song. It’s energetic, catchy and fun then there’s a guitar solo. It’s perfect.
After listening to it quite a few times now, we find ourselves singing You Did It! anytime those words are appropriate for our situation. This is a CD our whole family has enjoyed together. I’m interested, too, in going back to their earlier albums. The band turned from indie rock to kids’ music when band members became parents. Their first CD was made when their children were babies/toddlers and so it has great appeal to that age group. As their children have grown, so has the music and themes of the songs. I think the girls will love to grow up with this band!
