The new record Sundays at the Rocket Park has been out for about 3 weeks now and I wanted to share some of the fantastical reviews that have come out and thank some of the special sites and shows that have been featuring it.
First of all, here’s a brief excerpt from the OWTK feature:
Todd McHatton isn’t a name ever mentioned when discussing the best
working songwriters for kids. I kinda think it should be. What the
California native accomplishes with “Sundays at the Rocket Park” (and
previously with his outstanding, free Christmas Songs EP)
is rather remarkable; an entire full-length kiddie album easily capable
of passing for a dense, moody, very hip indie rock CD – the kind of
disc Stereogum or Pitchfork might gush over.
Please go here now and check out this awesome site and read the review in it’s entirety.
Pied Piper Radio said:
Todd McHatton’s most recent album, Sundays at the Rocket Park,
is our pick of the week! Lightly psychedelic pop, sprinkled with well
measured doses of glam rock and power pop, inspired by, and made for his
family. Log in here to listen to the entire feature/interview.
Chris Ballew – the awesome force behind The Presidents of the United States of America and Caspar Babypants said this about the new album: “This new Todd McHatton album is trippy fantastical brilliant and
expansive…like lost b-sides to a “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds”
single…this sounds like the inside of a child’s fertile mind.” And then he wrapped it up with…
“Cheers and congratulations on a truly killer album!” Check out his awesome Caspar Babypants project here!
Please go over to these amazing radio shows and thank them for playing all the Todd McHatton tunes for me… and let them know you want to here more!
