"Baby Blues and Lady Shoes" is an album of lullabys. Trying to get her baby to sleep, french synth artist Elsa Palmieri started to create hypnotic analog synth textures. The tracks evolved into something more, a reflection on motherhood and the landscape she grew up in: Finistere, the end of the world. Resonance and noise are an integral part of this first outing: "I was quite overwhelmed by becoming a mother and especially dealing with this new life alone. These tracks started as an experiment trying to get my baby to sleep, but at the same time it also beacme a way to reflect and stay creative. Most of the sounds were done on the Juno 6 synthesizer. It sounds like a bed already and is quite easy to handle if you have a baby in your arm. (laughs)"

The first track "Pointe du Van" feels like soft pillow of synth glissandi that alternate with noise waves, leading into "Audierne", the center piece of the release. A slowly evolving ambient track, with resonating overtones and quivering analog strings. "Jonas" is an eerie little lullaby, evoking Raymond Scott's early synthesizer music. The gloomy last track "Pointe du Raz" is the only track featuring a rhythm and hinting at Elsa Palmieri's self titled album, which will be released by Akkerbouw later this year.
