We’ve been listening to this new one from The Not-It’s!. Their third release for kids and families is titled Kidquake! and we think it might be their best yet. This album is pitches its tent very squarely in the power-pop camp and we love it for that! While most of the present day releases in the children’s music genre are heavily pop based, not many others rock in the way The Not-Its! do.
