I can't tell if Dan

I can’t tell if Dan Zanes, former Del Fuegos guy, is a sham artist — or even an artist. But he seems to continue to make waves of some height by playing kiddie music. I like reading about him because it says more about the state of music, children, parenting, and child culture than anything else going.
No kidding: the former avant-hipster is actually playing interesting, cool music for kids and he brings the parents in with them. Very smart marketing and sales tactic: Ensure that the music is syrupy enough for children (or at least better than the Barney song) to appreciate yet cool enough for their parents who grew up with man-child Bob Dylan.
Rocket Sheep Beach is his new album and it’s getting rave reviews by both children and adults in black Gap clothing.
