Now you can either be the coolest or have the coolest baby around, who is extremely well-musically versed, with these lullaby versions of famous songs!
There is a famous children’s music label out there, and it goes by the name Rockabye Baby!. Oh, edgy! This year marks its 10th year around and they are planning on celebrating big time for the anniversary. This year they put together and constructed an album of their own titled Birthday Party which includes some of the greatest pop songs of our generation, but baby style. How cool is that? These people warped and tuned and mixed and mastered complex melodies and songs into simple, bubbly tunes that any kid would enjoy to doze off to. This compilation is not fully out yet, but from what has been reported by sources like Pitchfork and Stereogum, it should be released sometime on October 14th. No joke, I probably will be checking out this album just to hear how they were able to revamp the sounds of OutKast’s “Hey Ya” into toddler speak and completely transform the electricity of David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” into a sleepy-cutsie sonic tune. The entirety of the album is meant to be the sickest way to get your baby to enjoy hardcore music, without too much of the noise, and you get to expose them to good stuff at an early age!
Rockabye Baby!’s motto is: Lullaby renditions of baby’s favorite rock bands.
So, I think they’re doing a pretty good job of what they do. We got a little sneak peak though of the kid label’s lullaby track of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” so you can hear it above! And check out the rest of the track list and the cover art below to see if any of your favorites are on there! ROCK ON, LITTLE ONES!
