Suz Slezak’s first children’s album, “Watching the Nighttime Come,” makes a big impact on the listener with a slate of quiet songs imbued with the powerful love a parent has for their child. A member of the indie folk band David Wax Museum, the vocalist-fiddler went solo for this CD full of haunting original and classic music which drops on Feb. 10. Parents can’t help but identify with the wonder and awe of a new mother holding her baby in Slezak’s “Where Did You Come From?” “You Got Love” is a soothing list of all of the relatives who have fallen head-over-heels over this new member of the family. Another favorite tune of mine is the title track, a lullaby that helps baby say “goodbye to the sun.” There’s much more to enjoy on this eclectic album — such as a 16th century round and a Mexican lullaby. Slezak will perform an album release show, “Sweet Love and Lullabies,” (for listeners 21 and older) on Feb. 13 at 7 pm at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 1, 196 Allen St. in Manhattan.
