• lullatone Songs That Spin In Circles (CD, £13.25)

    label: audio dregs recordings

    Let Lullatone lull you with this collection of lullabies. Originally composed for their newborn son, this set of merry-go-round melodies is the perfect bedtime background music for babies and adults alike. Each track is specially composed to loop seamlessly using the “repeat one” function on your CD or mp3 player, allowing unlimited long listening. Every melody can be enjoyed seamlessly for hours at a time as you drift to dreams, letting the songs spin in circles and the artwork also uses a special die-cut cover to allow the music's disc to spin too! The album also features a high level of sound science to ensure ultimate effectiveness in snooze induction. Underwater recordings, heartbeats as drumbeats and tape hiss as ambient white noise are just the beginning of the shuteye science the duo employ to create their most careful concept album to date. Imagine Calder making sound pieces instead of mobile sculptures or a Raymond Scott's "Soothing Sounds for Baby" that babies actually enjoyed. Perhaps if Brian Eno had made a Music For Airports For Babies it would sound like this. Or Sigur Ros on Nyquil? Beck has said that he played Lullatone songs in the past to his infant son and Momus has dubbed Lullatone "the cutest formalists in town". Lullatone is Shawn James Seymour and Yoshimi Seymour from Nagoya, Japan, who have been releasing conceptual pop albums since 2002, creating artwork, touring the world, and even hosting a Japanese children's TV programme. "Songs That Spin in Circles" is their sixth album.
