Indie Rock for Kids

I don't usually have children's music on my radar, seeing as how I don't have kids. But with LilSugar launching this week, I just had to share my recent discovery of a kids' CD that's so awesome, I might buy it and stash it away until I've got little ones of my own.

Released by the cutting-edge Nettwerk Records label, For the Kids III is the third in a series of compilation CDs featuring indie-rock bands singing songs for their tiniest fans. Of Montreal turns its psychedelic pop into cuteness, O.A.R. covers "The Itsy Bitsy Spider," and Over the Rhine does a hilarious little ditty called "The Poopsmith Song," which you can listen to here.

It sure as hell beats Barney, and I could definitely see picking some of these up for my friends with kids. How about you? If you have kids, would you buy them kiddie indie-rock?

Yeah, its bizarre...but it might be kind of cool. I'm not sure I would listen to it without children present, though.
