Reader Mike Vasas and wife Amanda have a unique coping strategy for prenatal anxieties. Rather than any of the typical behavior one might expect from expecting parents, they produce cover albums!
Songs Not By Your Parents Vol. II arrives today, after they welcomed their daughter into the world yesterday. For those of you that are wondering what happened to Volume I, it arrived in 2013 with their son August; whom you can hear on the new album with them! Congratulations Vasas family!
Amanda and I made a record of cover songs à la the http://www.songsnotbyme.com project for our baby back in 2013 and decided to give it another go...so here's another record for our new baby and for you to play for your baby or babies; however young, old, literal or metaphorical they may be.
