Lullatone

Songs That Spin in Circles

Audio Dregs Recordings

Released: 4th June 2012 | 10 track ambient album

Let Lullatone send you to sleep with their newest 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 employed to create their most careful concept album to date. Imagine Calder making sound pieces instead of mobile sculptures or a Raymond Scott's Soothing for Babies, 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 them 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 program. Songs That Spin in Circles is their sixth album.

"Lullatone’s favorite reviews are always happy sleepers; Beck once told Audio Dregs that he played Lullatone songs to his infant son and Momus has dubbed them the cutest formalists in town. Past reviewers have also said: “Lullatone overload on aesthetic traits frequently viewed as puerile, and they find in them something transcendent. In the world of Seymour and Tomida, cuteness is merely beauty of another kind.”"
Pitchfork
"Quite possibly the cutest thing that you will hear all year."
Japan Times
"“Parades of cascading bells, toy xylephones, plastic pianos, and small stringed stringed instruments all take part in Seymour's remarkable plight to paint color through tintinnabulation, and the results are wonderful.”"
XLR8R
"These songs could be the long lost siblings of that iconoclastic Radiohead track--albeit a female sibling whose content to lounge around in pajamas for the greater part of the day, and indulge her daydreaming and fantasy existence rather than reality."
