In this special, Friday edition: The Wiggles get Rewiggled, discover Analog Rebellion, and we resume our Blogophilia re-posts with Volume 18.
If you’ve had a child in the past twenty years (or if you’ve been one in the last twenty), it’s hard not to go by a bowl of fruit salad and proclaim it as yummy, yummy. Thanks to the Disney Channel, The Wiggles have left an indelible mark on children worldwide. It’s hard to believe this Aussie act is 20 years old. To mark this occasion, several of Australia’s best independent acts have contributed to the album, Rewiggled.
Rewiggled features 20 Wiggles songs recorded by The Living End, Washington, Jebediah, Sarah Blasko, Architecture In Helsinki, Spiderbait, Bluejuice, Frenzal Rhomb, Clare Bowditch, The Snowdroppers, Busby Marou, Adalita, Papa VS Pretty, The Audreys, Dead Letter Chorus, Oh Mercy, Angie Hart, Sons of Rico, Steve Lane and the Autocrats and Paul Greene. It’s out today and you can get it here.
Parents, this is stuff you can listen along with your kids in the car! The rest of you can relive your childhood.

Discover: Analog Rebellion
Analog Rebellion is the solo project of Daniel Hunter. At 21 years of age, this alternative rocker is amazingly prolific. The Aledo, Texas product is currently unsigned after releasing his debut with Island Records, and then moving on to release another LP (Ancient Electrons), a collection of B-sides (Besides, Nothing) and two EPs (Cavanaugh, Something; Dogs Are Better Than Cats).
He’s released a couple of demos for an as yet untitled, unscheduled third LP. Father Abraham‘s synth tones and ripping guitar create a dark atmosphere that reels in the listener. Holy Atmosphere is a screamer. You can listen to each below. Check back with us as we monitor what’s next from Analog Rebellion.
