Audio Dregs Lullatone : plays pajama pop pour vous (JAP,2006)****
“Pyjama music” ? ...
This sound almost like the concept, or a perfect description of the music.
The duo (Yoshimi Tomida & Shawn James Seymour) were even dressed in pyjamas for it ! Every track is done in and around the bedroom, just before sleeping. We hear warm minimalist-like modern electronic, and acoustic sounds from : a musical box, glockenspiel, ukulele -sounding as if it’s a toyguitar-, shaker, toydrums, handpercussion, steelpan, vibraphone, harmonica (?),..., accompanied by a sweet innocent whispery girl voice, with on the first track a small High School chorus part. The melodic electronica on its own is already sweet and like a lullaby, but with the girly voice and other little arrangements it became the nicest folktronica song-music you can imagine.
PS. It seems that almost all bass drum sounds on the CD were made from the sound of a pillow !!??
