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 playlistabove. 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.
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.
Night Beds took over Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Friday and we could not be prouder of their performance. Playing a fantastic (so says Jimmy) rendition of Country Sleep standout track “Ramona,” Winston and the band seemed very much at ease on the big stage. Watch the clip above (move to the 42 minute mark).
You can see Night Beds on tour now! They are playing St. Louis’s Off Broadway tonight with lots of shows to follow. Find all their dates HERE.
Night Beds have extended their spring tour! Come April, Winston Yellen will return to Europe for a number of shows, playing with both Matthew E. White and Stornoway. Dates start in Paris and end at Glasgow’s Broadcast. Check out the new dates below (full tour schedule HERE).

Winston Yellen and his brother, Abe, returned to their hometown at the end of last year to perform a few songs for Fuel/Friends. The beautiful session includes a heartbreaking cover of Damien Jurado’s “Everything Trying,” plus two originals off Night Beds’ Country Sleep, released just yesterday. Watch all three songs above!
Night Beds are wasting no time in conquering the road and world of touring. Winston and the crew will perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (win tickets) this Friday, February 8. They also stopped by the NPR offices today for their first Tiny Desk concert. More details on that performance to come, but check out these photos – #1 & #2 – until you can watch the real thing.
Lastly, Winston talked to The Tennessean’s Kevin Walters on the Music City Podcast. Listen to the interview HERE.
Night Beds – Country Sleep
“The guy is blessed with jump-out-of-the-gym vocal athleticism…the beautiful, new stranger in town.” - Pitchfork
“Gregarious and unassuming in appearance, he looks like any other 23 year-old from Colorado Springs, but when he sat down at the microphone and opened his mouth to sing the a capella “Faithful Heights,” we all fell completely silent. Dumbstruck. That voice just flies out of him, with no warning….I think Winston’s efforts could be one of the most notable and promising of the year that lies ahead of us.” – Fuel/Friends
“There’s a lot of dudes out there with sad tales of heartbreak and failure, but to be honest, they never sound this good.” – MTV Hive
