Night Beds are pretty damn good at anything they do. Take, for example, this reworking of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” recorded for the A.V. Club’s covers series. It takes a certain kind of imagination to put that song and this band together, but wallllaaaa it works! Check the video out above.
Night Beds are soon headed out on a summer headlining tour! It is only right that shows kick off in the band’s hometown of Nashville on May 24. Dates will take Night Beds through the Midwest, South and over to the East Coast. You’ll find the full schedule and ticket links below.

Good Morning! Good Morning! If you missed it before, here’s your chance to listen to Night Beds perform live on World Cafe. In addition to their interview with the ever-trusty David Dye, the band played a number of songs from their Dead Oceans debut Country Sleep. The list includes “Faithful Heights,” “Ramona,” “Even If We Try” and “Head For The Hills.” There is also an exclusive web version of “22.” Stream at NPR.
“The lyrics may have come from Nashville, but the record’s open, dusty sound is pure Colorado. Yellen brings his amazing, wide-ranging voice to this installment of World Cafe, playing songs from Country Sleep as well as a track that didn’t make the album.” – David Dye / World Cafe
