Editors’ Notes

Streetlight Lullabies is the first solo effort by Tomas Kalnoky (aka Toh Kay), lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist of the ska-punk band Streetlight Manifesto. Featuring solo acoustic renditions of Streetlight Manifesto songs (plus two songs originally recorded with his former band Catch 22), the album should appeal to fans while attracting new listeners; in fact, you needn’t be familiar with the originals to enjoy these indie-folk gems. Turning the songs inside out, he transforms them from boisterous, horn-fueled anthems into introspective musings. Though his fine fingerpicking gives the album texture, the sparse arrangements put the focus largely on his lyrics and hushed vocals. It’s a testament to his lyrical skill that the words retain their power even when not delivered with Kalnoky’s usual raspy hardcore bark. “Watch It Crash,” “The Big Sleep,” and “A Better Place, a Better Time” in particular benefit from the quiet delivery by making their moving stories easier to absorb. Streetlight Lullabies shows Kalnoky as a versatile songwriter capable of getting his songs across at any decibel level.

Customer Reviews

The Songbird of Our Generation

Somehow Tomas Kalnoky has fooled us again into taking his old songs and making us buy them as if it were a new CD...and he succeeded. Dr. Kalnoky does not leave us unsatisfied with this soothing and palliative work of art. I cannot get enough of this CD even though I have heard these songs 1000 times before. Something about the simplicity and slowness keeps me hooked. It's a masterpiece. One day we will get a new CD from Streetlight Manifesto, but until then Streetlight Lubllabies will sing me to sleep every night.

What else would you expect?

First off, let me say that everything Tomas Kalnoky touches is gold. What else would you expect from the lead singer of Streetlight Manifesto and several other side projects, like BOTAR? We the fan base have waited patiently (for the most part) for another release, any other release, and here it is, in all its glory. Bottom line: Buy this album.

Another piece of art

Showcasing his prowess on guitar to his amazingly poetic lyrics. From gimp to botar and streetlight, Tomas never ceases to amaze and inspire me.
