Lullaby Baxter’s back (plus Tim Easton’s new song "Jesus protect me from your followers")

Lullaby Baxter is back after a five year absence. Her debut in 2000 on Atlantic Records had critics and fan all a twitter. But she soon disappeared, fell in love, had a child, and wrote a book. She’s back now and her new record, Garden Cities Of To-morrow, (Boompa, Aug. 22) seems to fulfill all the promise of her debut.

She hired (then fired and then re-hired) the production duo Hercules to produce her followup and what sounds like a lot of work later (recording in Vienna, Tokyo and Rome) and the use of a flute quartet, Wurlitzer, and mellotron she has resurfaced with her lounge pop style intact (somewhere between Holly Cole and Madeline Peyroux).

Tim Easton’s record, Ammunition, was released in May. An eternity ago in mp3 blog terms but still relatively new in the real world. New West has released another song from this record to sample and it’s one I missed on my first few listens to the record. Buy Ammunition here.

    First time when I heard Lullaby Baxter it was on the radio. I am very glad to hear that she is back. Good for her!

    I just posted about her on the 3rd (because the 3rd was a Thursday…get it?) and had no idea she was back out. This is marvelous news, thank you for posting this!

    Same here. I remember hearing an interview/radio session on NPR one weekend many years back. Her debut was a pleasure and I’ve been waiting for this dfisc to drop for months. Thanks for the head’s up, and thrilled you are introducing her to folks, here’s hoping she’ll get a wider audience this time around.
