WOW // Night Beds In a Near Perfect Tiny Desk Concert

Every part of me wants to post this Tiny Desk concert and include only one word -> WOW. No lengthy introduction or description could make you fall more in love with Night Beds; you simply just need to watch and watch you will! The four-song set includes Country Sleep‘s “Faithful Heights,” “Ramona,” “22″ and an older track, “Hide From It.”

“…one of 2013′s most arresting new voices.”Robin Hilton, NPR Music

Now go witness the beautiful thing that is Night Beds in person. They are currently touring the US, with European dates to follow. See all HERE.

“Undeniably Gorgeous” // Night Beds’ “Even If We Try” Featured On NPR’s All Songs Considered

Have you had the chance to listen to the new episode of NPR’s All Songs Considered? Don’t wait any longer. Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton feature Night Beds’ “Even If We Try,” a track they call “undeniably gorgeous.” We could not agree more! With an perfectly sung, a capella start, this song evokes more emotion than many full-length albums. Listen to the podcast.

“Even If We Try” is found on Night Beds’ debut work, Country Sleep. The record hits stores next Tuesday, February 5, but you can pre-order it now from SC Distribution and download the entire album immediately.

Night Beds Announce Debut Album ‘Country Sleep,’ New Music Video Premieres Today at NPR

Night Beds announce the release of debut record, Country Sleep. The ten-track album represents a period of uncertainty and the escape Winston Yellen found in writing each song, done in an environment where personal limits were often tested. Where days blurred into nights and mornings signified a certain safety, Winston fought to find some sanity, some equal ground to come to terms with the months prior to his arrival in Nashville and occupancy of the late Johnny Cash and June Carter’s home. Country Sleep is set for release on February 5, 2013.

 
Premiering this morning at NPR’s All Songs Considered, it is the brand new video for Night Bed’s gorgeous single “Even If We Try.” Called “a languid gem of a song paired with very disturbing video” by Bob Boilen, the video takes the viewer on a dark and incredibly uncomfortable journey as the main character, played by Winston, quickly falls apart at a party. Director Rick Alverson chose to pair the beautiful, heartbreaking song with something equally moving, although in a much different way. Watch “Even If We Try” above.

Stay in the know with Night Beds. Follow Winston on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The recording, it should be mentioned, is totally insane.  The audience at the 9:30 club was completely enraptured, and you will be, too.  This concert and subsequent recording reveal all of  The Tallest Man on Earth’s heart, dynamism and skill.  We are seriously so lucky to be working with this man.  Thank you, NPR!
