Overview

Best known for her postmodern hit "Stay," folk-rock songstress Lisa Loeb reconnects with her onetime musical partner, Elizabeth Mitchell, for a charming set of kids' sleepy-time music, featuring both traditional tunes and originals. Loeb's sweet, whimsical singing proves an easy match for the spare, acoustic arrangements here. She's also a perfect foil to Mitchell, a children's performer in her own right, with husband Dan Littleton (the couple also record as the indie-rock band Ida). Loeb and Mitchell accompany their singing and heavenly harmonies with guitar, banjo, fiddle, and piano, along with finger snaps, bells, vocals from a few pint-sized pals, and a little help from Littleton and Warren Defever (of indie group His Name Is Alive). The familiar songs here fit like an old corduroy coat, such as a gorgeous rendition of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," sung with warmth by Loeb, and a whimsical update on "Big Rock Candy Mountain," where Mitchell's harmonies add a glow to Loeb's lead. Mitchell takes the reins on a lovely, piano-led version of Bob Dylan's "New Morning," with a vocal suggesting a beam of sunshine on a cloudy day. The pair's originals are of a piece: The lullaby-like title song backs Mitchell's lead with a fuller arrangement, laced with keyboards, while the gorgeous "Butterfly," a Loeb solo number, promises both heavy lids and sweet dreams. For both playtime and bedtime, Catch the Moon is a real joy.
