CD comes in special die cut digipack.

Originally composed for their newborn son, this set of merry-go-round melodies is the perfect bedtime background music for babies and adults alike. Each track is specially composed to loop seamlessly using the “repeat one” function on your CD or mp3 player, allowing unlimitedly long listening. Every melody can be enjoyed seamlessly for hours at a time as you drift to dreams, letting the songs spin in circles and the artwork also uses a special die cut cover to allow the music's disc to spin too.

Songs That Spin in Circles is their sixth album and furthers the concept of sleep-worthy pop hits as a "music for babies" concept album. Demos for the tracks were begun by Shawn while he was waiting in the hospital for the newest band member, Niko, to be born. Niko soon went to work testing the advantageousness of the new songs in helping take him into dreamland. The album features a high level of sound science to ensure ultimate effectiveness in snooze induction. Underwater recordings, heartbeats as drumbeats, and tape hiss as ambient white noise are just the beginning of the shuteye science the duo employed to create their most careful concept album to date. Imagine Calder making sound pieces instead of mobile sculptures or Raymond Scott's "Soothing for Babies" that babies actually enjoyed. Imagine if Brian Eno had made a Music for Airports For Babies... Or Sigur Ros on Nyquil? We're getting closer to the sound. Beck has said that he played Lullatone songs in the past to his infant son and Momus has dubbed them "the cutest formalists in town."
