LSTN // Night Beds Live on World Cafe

Good Morning! Good Morning! If you missed it before, here’s your chance to listen to Night Beds perform live on World Cafe.

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

Night Beds are currently on tour, playing many a European venue. You can see all of the upcoming tour dates and ticket links HERE.

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.
