Review of Lay-by Lullaby [12k1079]

Monsieur Delire (FR)

Finally, a new major work from Janek Schaefer… and his debut release on the much-trusted 12k label. <i>Lay-by Lullaby</i> is a follow-up of sorts to his sound installation <i>Asleep at the Wheel</i>. Sounds of cars passing by, soporific music drifting from the radio, Schaefer’s audio assemblage invites us to stop on the curb and take a nap (tiredness as the wheel kills, folks). A very quiet album that plays with ideas like kitsch, relaxation, and dreams in sophisticated ways.
