Tool Classics Turned Into Lullabies by Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star
For a while now, we’ve been lamenting our own childhoods; not for any profound reasons, but simply because Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star didn’t exist when we were infants. For a few years now, the company has been turning the world’s most popular music into lullabies for your restless children, with Tool being the latest to receive the TTLRS treatment.
We’ve written about Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star in the past for their renditions of Pantera, Slipknot (out today) and Avenged Sevenfold tracks, but the company’s library is ridiculously rich. Having covered Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slayer, Guns N’ Roses and many others, TTLRS have well over 100 releases available.
It’s never to early to introduce your little ones to Tool, even if you strategically point a pair of speakers directly towards your womb. However, Tool is a pretty heavy band, so TTLRS has transformed classics such as ‘Schism,’ ‘Lateralus,’ ‘Stinkfist’ and nine more Tool tracks into lullabies. Although the full album doesn’t come out until July 16 (pre-order here), Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star have released their full version of ‘Sober’ for your listening pleasure.
“We feel our lullaby line fills a vacant musical niche,” begins Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star’s mission statement. “There are other lines of pop music lullabies but we decided to take the approach of being high end musically rather than simply doing these as a novelty. After all, just because the music is for a baby it doesn’t have to sound unsophisticated. We feel we owe it to the artists that we are covering to do their music justice and our standard of quality transcends the lullaby genre. In fact, in addition to soothing babies our fans use our music for yoga, massage and sleep therapy or just general relaxation. We like to call them ‘lullabies for all ages’ and the diversity of use is testament to that.”
