Last night, Night Beds were heard on WNYC’s Soundcheck segment, Blind Date. The show introduces listeners to up-and-coming bands through new music and a most personable interview. On this special episode, we’re treated to several “khaki dad jamz” (as the guys like to call them) from the forthcoming album, Country Sleep, out February 5. Listen to “Ramona,” “22″ and “Lost Springs” below!

“Music for dads to kinda groove out to, shake it a little bit, get the angst out.” – Night Beds

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.
