Sing Me to Sleep – indie lullabies out now + an MP3 & NY show

DOWNLOAD: Dean & Britta – Making Me Smile (MP3)

Sing Me to Sleep

“Sing Me To Sleep” is a really fun compilation of lullabies and popular songs re-imagined as lullabies by some of today’s best indie artists including: Dean & Britta, Tanya Donelly, The Leisure Society, The Rest, Telekinesis, Jenny Owen Youngs, The Real Tuesday Weld, Snowbird, Neil Halstead, and many more. All proceeds from this wonderful album are donated to The Valerie Fund, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that provides support for the comprehensive health care of children with cancer and blood disorders. It’s a beautifully produced album for indie-hipsters young and old.

Sing Me To Sleep: Indie Lullabies came out in May on American Laundromat Records (the first pressing came with a bonus 7″ with a song by Sigur Rós). Check it out if you can, it’s a great compilation (for adults at least – I haven’t tested it with kids!)

Coming up, Joe’s Pub will be hosting a June 13th show for the album with contributors Tanya Donelly, backed by a jazz ensemble, Jenny Owen Youngs and Julie Peel. This all-ages, kid-friendly (with face painting, free souvenirs and door prizes) starts at noon. Tickets are on sale.

Songs from the record (including Stars cover of the Smith’s “Asleep”) are streaming, and the Dean & Britta track is available above. Tracklist for the CD and show flyer are below…
