NEW VIDEO: Chibi Kodama – “The Safety Dance”

Family kindie band Chibi Kodama has been cranking out a lot music. Since 2014, they’ve released four albums, one EP, and a collection of “alternate” takes of singles from those albums. And they’re still going strong.

Now they’re dipping their toes into the world of cover songs. An 80s one-hit-wonder staple. Men Without Hats’ “The Safety Dance”. The new wave synthesizer has moved to the background and replaced by the fuzz of a guitar.

Yes, this is a cover song, but the band has made it their own.

Greetings and salutations. Too formal? What’s up, kiddos!? So after eleven years I’ve finally updated/upgraded to a better web experience for me and, hopefully, for you as well.

Keep your eyes peeled and bookmark this site. I will share news & info about the latest goings-on in Kindie music. Album reviews, videos, and interviews.
