Jeff Bridges Sleep Tapes
We’ve seen a few pieces of merchandise spinoffs from The Big Lebowski in our day, but relaxation CDs? Well, no, but it’s close. This is Jeff Bridges Sleep Tapes, a new tongue-in-cheek promotional effort with the digital platform Squarespace. But yes, if you’d like to consider this Bedtime chatter from The Dude, there won’t be much disbelief to suspend.
With environmental sounds, ambient keyboards, and Bridges’ decidedly offbeat musings (“Oh look.. there goes a hiker.. he looks like a nice guy… maybe his name is Jim or Neal… HELLO NEAL!”), the 15-track album is sure to fit nicely in your novelty albums collection, right next to The Transformed Man by William Shatner. It’s a pay-what-you-wish digital download, or up the oddball ante and score it on vinyl or cassette. Nice perk: 100 percent of retail sales will go to the “No Kid Hungry” campaign, a big cause for Bridges himself. [Purchase]
