Listen To This: "Cats & Dogs" - Best Coast

 Best Coast - "Best Kids" cover

Best Coast - "Best Kids" cover

I know, I know record labels are (mostly) dead [waves "Hi" at Bill], but I do appreciate that Amazon Music is using some of its bazillions of dollars not just to give away free bananas but fund the creation of some kids music that probably wouldn't happen otherwise.

The latest such album is the forthcoming album Best Kids from crunchy garage pop-rockers Best Coast.  The duo of singer/guitarist Bethany Consentino and multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno, took 11 songs, a mixture of classics like "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Rainbow Connection" and originals, and gave them their own Best Coast spin.  (There is, unsurprisingly, no banjo on their revved-up version of "Rainbow Connection.")

You can hear the whole thing exclusively on Amazon Music on June 22 (preorder it here), but you can listen to one of the originals, the friendship-celebrating "Cats & Dogs, RIGHT. HERE. NOW.
