Justin Roberts, a singer-songwriter from Chicago, has firmly established himself as a darling of the kid-indie (or "kindie") music scene. Parents will love his smart lyrics and fun tunes; kids will love the fact that his songs are written about things they understand.

"Obsessed By Trucks," for example, is a catchy tune about a brother who is (as you might have guessed) obsessed by trucks of all kinds. "Trucks" is especially fitting for an on-the-road playlist, since the brother in question likes to spot his beloved trucks when the family is in the car. Be warned: The chorus will get stuck in your head. But you probably won't mind.
