A selection of Bayside songs just got a toddler-friendly makeover. Punk's resident lullaby experts, Sparrow Sleeps, are revealing their 23rd release—CALM: Lullaby Renditions of Bayside Songs—and AP has your first listen.
Bayside frontman Anthony Raneri touts the album's diverse offerings.
“I think it's a really cool selection for a Bayside fan,” says Raneri. “There is an interesting mix of singles and deep cuts. I was pretty surprised by some of their choices when I saw them.”
Peter Lockhart of Sparrow Sleeps is a huge Bayside fan.
The duo have covered plenty of scene favorites (Taking Back Sunday, Saves The Day, Jimmy Eat World), and it was only a matter of time before the pair took on one of Lockhart's favorite bands.
“I was first introduced to Bayside around 2001 or 2002 as someone standing behind a booth at Warped Tour in Indiana gave me a free Dying Wish Records sampler and then proceeded to convince me to buy a copy of Bayside's 'Long Stories Short' for 5 bucks,” Lockhart shares. “I've been listening to them ever since. So, this summer when Casey and I were discussing which bands we wanted to cover for Sparrow Sleeps releases, it was a no-brainer to immediately throw Bayside on that list.”
The album is available digitally along with the rest of the Sparrow Sleeps catalog at www.SparrowSleeps.com.
