more info:


Lullatone makes cute music. We call it pajama pop. We have made 4 albums albums full of our tiny melodies. Our latest CD is called Lullatone plays pajama pop pour vous. It is pillow pop music with a bedtime beat, a sleepytime samba, a bedroom bossa nova! In 2003 we released a CD called "little songs about raindrops" from the Plop label (Japan and Europe) and Audio Dregs (North and South America). It featured "a tiny orchestra of toy instruments" that we used to make our idea of how raindrops might sound if they fell like music notes. Our first two albums "computer recital" (released from Audio Dregs) and "my petit melodies" (released from Childisc) mainly used only sine tones to make small symphonies. Sine tones are the most simple and pure kind of sound. So we used this sound to make simple and pure melodies.

the smittens

(you know their story but......)

The Smittens are a five-piece indiepop band from Burlington, Vermont and like to think of themselves as a DIY twee pop explosion. Dana Kaplan, Colin Clary, David Zacharis, Holly Chagnon, and Max Andrucki, with help from the talented Emily Hilliard, switch up instruments, song-writing, and singing to create brilliantly lyrical and hyper-catchy pop songs of all colors, shapes and sizes. Formed on a whim
at a party in 2002 by a group of popkids who wanted to make for their friends the kind of music they love, the Smittens have emerged as one of the countryís best-loved underground indiepop quintets, with headlining slots in the past year at the New England, New York, Toledo, and Athens Popfests. The bandís hotly anticipated third
album Pop Your Heart, mixed by Eric Masunaga, will be out in summer, 2007, on Athens, Georgiaís indie institution Happy Happy Birthday To Me. The band will be touring the US in the summer and fall of 2007.

See you there in your PJ's!
