KIDROCKERS produces All Ages shows that bring families together to experience some of the most engaging and vital artists in indie music and comedy. Artists perform original (not specifically made for children) songs in a manner that is both authentic and kid-friendly.
It’s hard to imagine mature, self-respecting childless adults wanting — much less needing — to sneak into a kids’ show. But Beth Lorge has met such desperate grown-ups. New York Times January 2013
Kidrockers feat. Small Black
Formed at the tail-end of 2008 as a bedroom recording project, Small Black first made waves with their eponymous debut EP. Recorded in the attic of singer Josh Kolenik’s uncle’s remote Long Island beach-house/surfboard workshop, it served as an ideal introduction to the group with its pulsing patchwork synths and addictive, stay-gold hooks that seemed to unfurl themselves gradually over repeated listens. Slightly more immediate and polished than its predecessor, Small Black’s new album “New Chain” remains a continuation of this contrasting ethos – a delirious smudging of the lines between melancholy and nostalgia, tension and celebration, unabashed pop music and experimentation.
Radical Dads is a band that has come unstuck in time. The constituent parts are Robbie Guertin (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), Lindsay Baker, and Chris Diken, who play drums, guitar, and another guitar, respectively. They first laid ears on each other in the ancient mythic age known as the late 1990s, and formed the band in the post-crash period of 2008. The band's latest album was released halfway through vortex 2013. All of Radical Dads' music exists in the present and is yours to keep.
The Radical Dads vinyl slab program includes "Rapid Reality" (2013) and "Mega Rama" (2011), along with the 7-inches "Torrential Zen" (2012), "Skateboard Bulldog" (2011), and "Recklessness" (2010).
"Creature Out" is the most recently occurring slab, also 7-inches in diameter. The release was recorded by Carlos Hernandez and Julian Fader at the Silent Barn in Brooklyn, NY. The B-side is a song called "Slammer," which is about being locked up. The "Creature Out" 7-inch is being released by EAU Records on November 5th, 2013. EAU Records is run by artist Sam Martineau, who is also responsible for silkscreening, stenciling and collaging 300 handmade variations of the cover art.
