Introducing The Rattles...and a giveaway!

There's a new music group, straight from the wild, called The Rattles. They're a lively band of furry, family-friendly critters and their debut album, Rattle On, will be released on August 17. They call their music a fusion of classic rock and power pop. The unique animal collective consists of four stellar musicians and life-long friends – Gus, Kitty, Sal, and Hal – who describe their upcoming release as “the album we were born to make”. I was told their influences are The Beatles, The Monkees, and They Might Be Giants. I'm a big fan of They Might Be Giants and I can really hear semblances of all 3 bands in their song Wavy Lane. You can listen to the lead single, Wavy Lane, at http://themusebox.net/mp3s/wavy_lane.mp3

We're getting to the stage with Monkey Girl where we need kids music in the car for our trips and this is a great choice. I wouldn't mind listening to The Rattles for any length of time on a road trip. The music is enjoyable for the whole family. I think she'll enjoy it more as she gets older, but you can have a lot of fun with the songs. For example, I envision waving our hands in the air when we're listening to Wavy Lane. You know how you need to come up with fun activities to get their mind off the fact that they're in the car for hours. You can read more about The Rattles here and get a copy of their album starting August 17th.

Each character has a distinct personality and Gus is the most vivacious of the group. Check out their website, http://www.rattlesrock.com/ for more about them. You can also follow them on twitter. I think Gus would be excited to hear that I have THREE copies of their new album to giveaway to my readers.
