My first listen of the new Ozomatli record was on a recent weekend road trip with my girlfriend. By the second song we gave each other that "WTF" look. In hindsight, should of read the presser before listening. Ozomatli have created a kids record. Inspired after being commissioned to write some educational songs for PBS in the states, the seven piece latino rock band set out to create a full album of quirky kids songs that's a bit like a The Wiggles if they spent a year in the Caribbean with Rastafarians.
We've got a huge update here, with about 50 releases getting mentions this week. There's literally something for everyone in this list, so take a look and see what catches your eye!

We named Harvest Festival our favourite festival of 2011, and after a slight bit of worry that the Brisbane leg could be culled due to council concerns...well, to say we were thankful to hear that it would be back in all cities in 2012!
The lineup was announced on Triple J, and boy howdy...well, let's just get to it. It's out of this damn world.
Oh Hark, The Sun Approaches!
