The Police Box: Lipsync for a Lullaby presents ‘April Fools’

Spread the love

For the fickle month of the year, Lipsync for a Lullaby serve up a mind-bending mix of genres, spanning classical, metal, hip-hop, folk and jazz.

Sad As Dead Monkeys

The Leg

The three masked musketeers, a real icon of Edinburgh scene, never fail to deliver surprises and joy to us with their uncompromising song-writing. This song, to some of us, is a metamorphosis of sincerity and musical longing. (Atzi, Lipsync for a Lullaby)

Why is for Yak?

Secta Rouge

What’s supposed to be metal exclamation is actually the voice of all musicianship transcending genre. The riffs in ridiculously tight rhythms are a sheer ecstasy-kick to our brain cells that goes all the way down the spine when you experience it live.

Fools’ Day Parade

Sileni vs Church of When the Shit Hits the Fan

A gift from Edinburgh’s Black Lantern Music, co-written and recorded in a day for this release by Sileni (a noise-rap bouffon jamboree drawing upon extreme noise, cyber-crunk, surf invocation and bent-jiggy) and C.O.W.T.S.H.T.F. (gospel crunk apocalypse)

The Thunder That You Are


Taken from beautifully recorded EP, this tune is another gift from Black Lantern Music. A prelude to a cinematic journey that flourishes in mind. (Atzi, Lipsync for a Lullaby)

Fourth Mansions

The Discordian Trio

What happens if contemporary jazz mix melting pot of math, standards, romanticism, and wee bit of metal????? Euphoria.


Mr Peppermint

Mr Peppermint’s second outing on Ten Tracks is rather experimental as they might say, a stolen breath from their latest album is ‘the sound of a kind argument. A hint of voice beneath their masks’ (Atzi, Lipsync for a Lullaby)

Sono Quel Che Sono

Ryan Somerville

Sono Quel Che Sono, or “I am what I am”, is a contemporary piece by Ryan that would combine 18th and 20th century styles, an inspired response to Maestro Salvatore Sciarrino, who said to him once that he was ‘thinking old’.



Maybe this is what bands are supposed to sound like before we’re intoxicated with telly, and all other annoying shit. This phenomena was analogue-tape recorded in the church, joined by Atzi (Lipsync for a Lullaby) on the Cello.

Unicorn’s Lament (live)

Lipsync for a Lullaby

Lipsync for a Lullaby are an ensemble of string quartet and drums. ‘Unicorn’s Lament’ describes beauty when desires flow out of a young person’s mind. This is a live recording from their memorable EP launch, at Edinburgh Art College’s Wee Red Bar.

Mississippi (Kramer remix)

Steve Adey

Steve released his only album to date ‘All Things Real’ in 2006. Mississippi is the closing track, here remixed by Kramer (Second-Shimmy). Slow fusing piano and impressive vocals. Let the sound spread into the moonlight just before the dawn.
