Lullabies & Nightmares [preview]

The harsh reality of monotony within a relationship is a talking point. Even if you’ve talked about EVERYTHING there is to talk about (personal histories, likes/dislikes, current events/entertainment, internet memes, Pinterest ‘_’, etc.) with your sig-nif, eventually it’s time to just sit and do something else with them there. But what if there’s a beyond to that stifling silence? Not only does Justin Walter bring you dream-time melodies via his Electronic Valve Instrument, but with that, he pops off conversations during Lullabies & Nightmares. Personally, I forget almost every dream of mine. Yet Justin Walter here provides sleeping listeners with the opportunity to narrate their dreams while asleep. The soothing sounds of Lullabies & Nightmares entices sleep-entranced listeners to talk and communicate each detail of their dream unconsciously. As if it were something completely hypnotizing, Justin Walter’s Electronic Valve Instrument opens an audible path-wave into your personal dream dimension and draws out your inner-creativity during a full night’s wink.

And say you and your sig-nif really want to continue talking; pop on Lullabies & Nightmares and have a full unconscious conversation about your dreams. Maybe y’all’ll meet and tie dimensions of creative mind’s eyes and birth a dream baby that’s unlike what you’ve thought a child, or any animal, for that matter, would look in real life. Only in your dreams can you care for this dream-child, which you start working for rent in your dreams, so the child can grow up, have an education if it pleases, and Godzillas its way across [your country here]. This is where Lullabies & Nightmares becomes a national crisis. But you want to talk to your sig-nif in your sleep and shit, right?

Sleep with Lullabies & Nightmares on Kranky out May 28, and keep your dream children in their own realm, please.
