Getting your kid to fall asleep is one of the hardest parts of your day. It’s a struggle against their innate desire not to be in bed and your overwhelming need for them to sleep. Well, thanks to the absolute genius of Rockabye Baby, nighttime has gotten easier–and a little more hip–for smart parents. They don’t have to listen to the same old lullabies over and over again, and neither do the kids. It’s a win-win situation. Those are hard to come by when you’re raising a child.
The concept of Rockabye Baby is wonderfully simple. The label takes popular music–we’re talking actual popular music, like Bob Marley and Coldplay–and turns it into lullabies. We never truly understood the power of a xylophone until this moment. But now we know. Seriously, that instrument is one of the greatest gifts to mothers all over the world. So, what does this mean for you? It means that you can actually enjoy bedtime. Although you should probably be warned: These songs have some sort of magical power, and you’ll probably end up asleep, too.
Of coure, Rockabye Baby isn’t a huge secret. Their releases have been featured on The Ellen Show, and they’ve enjoyed celebrity endorsements from the likes of Elton John and Victoria Beckham. But we’re particularly excited to see the Rockabye Baby crew coming through with the new Rockabye Baby: Lullaby Renditions of Silverchair.
This one is probably the Rockabye Baby line’s most obscure offering yet. In fact, we’re just going to assume that they’re reaching out to an Australian market. Silverchair is an inspired choice, too–even if a lot of parents don’t remember the ’90s acts who broke out big as teenagers. They ended up putting together a really impressive collection of albums. The folks of Rockabye Baby chose all of the band’s best songs for their tribute album, too. They even include the controversial “Israel’s Son.” So invest in an early introduction to quality jams, and hope that you’ll be a good influence on the kid. And while there aren’t any Rockabye Silverchair videos yet, here’s an idea of the Rockabye empire…
