The Rattles!

Tater loves music. He loves all kinds of music, but especially the kid stuff. He dances, he sings, and he plays his little guitar. It’s really cute to watch and one of those things I always say “Man, I need to get that on video”, but I never do.

So when I was contacted and asked if I’d like to review a new kids band called The Rattles, I was excited for the opportunity! The Rattles is a lively band of furry, family-friendly critters who released their debut album, ‘Rattle On’ on August 17th. They have a fresh, modern fusion of classic rock and power pop. Their style is similar to The Beatles, They Might Be Giants, and The Monkees. They personally remind me most of The Beatles. They set themselves apart from the average children’s music group by creating a listening experience that parents and adults can enjoy as well. Similar to the music of Yo Gabba Gabba, this project is about creating music EVERYONE can groove out to! Take a listen to the lead single, “Wavy Lane” and other songs on the official website!

You can also check out their video “Rattle On” right here!

Tater LOVES this CD! He wants to listen to it in the car, at home, on the iPod, anywhere and everywhere. And honestly, I kinda like it! The Rattles have a groovy beat and the music is funky/old school.

To celebrate the ‘RATTLE ON’ album release, The Rattles recently unveiled their snazzy new official website, This fully decked-out, colorful little corner of cyber-space allows The Rattles’ biggest fans to read up on the band’s back-story, listen to some groovy tunes, scope out a slew of tour photos, play interactive games, and shop for official band gear at the online store. There is even a special section for parents!
