Nick Luscombe's selection includes Holly Pester's alternative lullabies, plus new music from A Tribe Called Quest and Brazilian jazz ensemble Azymuth, and a Pete Seeger track.

Nick Luscombe presents a new collaboration between Holly Pester with musicians and sound artists exploring "lullabies as poetry, worksongs, spells and curses".
