The Kids Are Alright!

These songs are for them kids! Yep, it's National Children's Day, and it's time to break into song. I don't have like, Raffi or Barney or anything, but these songs are pretty sweet, all the same. Sorry if some of the files are down, my host's been goin' crazy. Time to upgrade? Methinks it is so.

Animal Collective: "Kids on Holiday" [MP3]
The Thrills: "Hollywood Kids" [MP3]
Pants Yell! "Kids Are The Same" [MP3]
Throw Me The Statue: "Conquering Kids" [MP3]
Suburban Kids With Biblical Names: "Little Boys In The Ghetto" [MP3]
The Rumble Strips: "Boys and Girls in Love" [MP3]
Whiskeytown: "Hurts Sometimes (Little Girls) [Demo]" [MP3]
Cat Power: "Colors and the Kids" [MP3]

Oh, and speaking of kids, I certainly can't resist posting on Black Kids! The band made a huge impression on the Athens Pop Fest in August, and they've only been getting more attention since then (a very favorable P-Fork review for their EP?!?). These are some fun, 80s-sounding songs, and the entire Wizard of Ahhhs EP is available on the band's MySpace for free download, if you like what you hear (and you will).

"I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You" [MP3]
"I Wanna Be Your Limousine" [MP3]
