Album Notes
Should a baby fall asleep to Radiohead or Massive Attack? When close friends became parents, Barry James decided to gift the family with a bedtime soundtrack more suited to their new situation. With 'Strange Slumber: Music for Wonderful Dreams', James has created an ambient album edgy enough for those soothed by feedback yet friendly enough to shepherd a newborn into dreamland. This is not the musical numbing agent you know from elevators and waiting rooms. From the catchy but vaguely unsettling 'Aliens Talk Backwards' to the delicately percussive 'Good Fortune', James reinterprets the genre in a manner that is both time-altering and timeless.
