WATCH // Night Beds Perform Live for Lawrence High School’s Film & Media Series

Night Beds stopped by Room 125 at Lawrence High School for a another beautiful live session (aren’t they all, really?) and interview. It’s all for an ongoing project film & media students started awhile ago. You can watch “Lost Springs” and “Was I For You?” in our Youtube playlist above. I personally recommend paying special attention to the 1:50 mark in “Was I For You”; Winston and Caleb work some special harmonizing magic. Siggghhhh.

Did you see Winston on Rachael Ray earlier this week? SPIN certainly did, which means you probably should too….fast forward to the 3:40 mark and open your eyes.

Dead Oceans Welcomes Night Beds to the Family, “Even If We Try” 7″ Out Tomorrow

We are incredibly excited to welcome Night Beds to the Dead Oceans family. Led by 23-year old songwriter, Winston Yellen, Night Beds hail from Nashville, TN by way of Colorado Springs. Winston boasts a new, great American voice with a specific brand of intimate thirst that few musicians possess.

Today, we get the pleasure of hearing Night Beds’ first single “Even If We Try.” It’s only fitting this stunning single was recorded in the former Hendersonville home of country-music legend, Johnny Cash. Watch Winston and lap-steel musician, Caleb Hickman, perform “Even If We Try” live in a church – you’ll find the video below or stream the audio version HERE. Read the rest of this entry »

WATCH: New Video for Bill Fay’s “This World”

Premiering today at Stereogum, the new video for Bill Fay’s “This World” features Super 8 film projected onto faces of people, a combination of both strangers to and friends of the director. Bill’s labelmate and long time fan, Califone’s Tim Rutili, directed the video, commenting, “thinking about making images for this music triggered faces and memory. It made me want to stare into a stranger’s eyes.” To add ease to the up-close filming, Rutili asked participants to talk about their very first childhood memory. You’ll notice a cameo of Jesus Lizard’s David Yow. Watch above.

Bill Fay’s Life Is People came out last week and has since received numerous rave reviews from fans and critics alike! Check it all out at Any Decent Music, who has compiled a great list for your reading pleasure. You can order your copy from SC Distribution!
