about

Songs That Spin in Circles is their sixth album and will be released June 9, 2009 and
furthers the concept of sleep-worthy pop hits as a "music for babies" concept album. Demos for the tracks were begun by Shawn while he was waiting in the hospital for the newest band member, Niko, to be born. Niko soon went to work testing the advantageousness of the new songs in helping take him into dreamland. The album 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 Raymond Scott's "Soothing for Babies" that babies actually enjoyed. Imagine if Brian Eno had made a Music for Airports For Babies... Or Sigur Ros on Nyquil? We're getting closer to the sound. 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."
