Anthemic Pop Wonder's final CD - recorded in 2003 and released early in 2004. Like the Replacements' final LP (ie. Westerberg's first solo record), Supersonic Lullabies is Dfactor's first solo LP (unless you count Rapid Pop Thrills, which was pretty close as well).
All the APW trademarks are here - from the 70s AM radio pop of "Ridin' a Hitch" and the punk-inspired "Chip in the Head" to the sweet and tender "Yours Forever" and the REM-esque CD closer "Green & Gold". A good number of these songs formed the playlist of the final APW rock shows in early 2004.
Playing all the instruments, writing all the songs and singing his heart out, Dfactor comes up with another cool collection of catchy pop rock and roll songs designed to flip your wig on repeated listens.
Sent out for reviews, but never formally released, Supersonic Lullabies gets its airing on CD Baby now in summer 2004. Splendid Magazine wrote: "Was Teenage Fanclub the most essential band of the nineties? If you take that question seriously, you'll love Anthemic Pop Wonder's Supersonic Lullabies." Crashin' In wrote: "From pop punk to garage to infectous 60's inspired melodies. Dfactor leads this outfit with some good ole solid tunes."

APW is done and over, but Dfactor's songs live on. Look for a new Dfactor solo CD in early 2006, featuring new insights into the human condition by way of classic pop rock and roll.
