Elseblogging: Disney Funk at Covering the Mouse

March 27th, 2008 — 10:24 pm

Just a quick redirect to Covering the Mouse, the incredible one-a-day Disney coverblog, where Kurtis has graciously allowed me to guest host for the day to continue spreading the word about an amazing new album of “funkified classic hits for children and adults featuring New Orleans finest.”

I first mentioned Funky Kidz a few weeks ago when I posted Walter “Wolfman” Washington’s delta blues take on This Land Is Your Land for our popular Covered in Kidfolk series. Since then, the album has been on heavy rotation in the family car. It’s not folk in the modern sense, but it is chock full of authentically regional American folk forms. And every track is a gem, sure to please whether you’ve got kids or just like a good second line cover set.

So head on over to Covering the Mouse for Bonerama’s seriously funky brass band cover of Randy Newman’s Toy Story theme You’ve Got A Friend In Me. And then y’all come back now, hear? We’ll be back Sunday with a long-overdue look back at a few favorite posts from our first six months on the mp3blog map.
