Lit and AV to put under the tree, recommended by CW staffers
Kolbie Stonehocker suggests:
Edie Carey & Sarah Sample, ’Til the Morning: Lullabies & Songs of Comfort
Two folk singersongwriters recording an album of classic and original lullabies and lullaby-style covers of popular songs might not sound like a revolutionary idea, but Edie Carey and Utah’s Sarah Sample’s ’Til the Morning: Lullabies & Songs of Comfort is an album I think a lot of adults don’t realize they need until they hear it. There’s no getting around the fact that the world is a stressful place, but as Sample says, this album gives weary, battle-worn minds “a soft place to land.” The soothing instrumentation and vocals will of course appeal to kids, and adults will also appreciate the lyrics (by artists including Townes Van Zandt) and high quality of the beautiful music.
