Lucky Diaz – Made In L.A.

Made In L.A. is Lucky Diaz’s funky, fresh love letter to the City of Angels. It will be released on July 21st. We are proud to offer you a first glimpse at the gorgeous Made In L.A. artwork, created by the one and only Micah Player.

Listen to the infectious ‘Paletero Man’ – an ode to the Mexican ice cream man. Good luck getting the chorus out of your head:

Oye, my friend
Can you hear the sounds of the weekend
Oye, my friend
Don’t miss your chance

Ven aca Paletero man

Lucky will be playing Lollapalooza this summer in addition to plenty of other shows across the US. If he’s in your town, make plans to support great independent music. 

‘Paletero Man’ is also featured on this killer summer road trip playlist featuring Lisa Loeb, Justin Roberts, Red Yarn and more!

Michael The Rockenss Monsters

Make no mistake, I’m a sucker for a good pirate song. So when I get an email about a tune called ‘Pirate Song’, I’m going to give it a listen.

Michael and the Rockness Monsters is a new project from Michael Napolitano, who had previously founded Preschool of Rock. The band’s debut self-titled album will be released on February 26th.

‘Pirate Song’ reached #2 on Kids Place Live over the summer and is now officially getting a formal video treatment. Dadnabbit is proud to premiere the video for ‘Pirate Song’

Michael and the Rockness Monsters is available for pre-order on Amazon or you can go grab ‘Pirate Song’ on iTunes.
