Interview With an Angel // Night Beds & NBC New York

NBC’s Oresti Tsonopoulos had the chance to sit down with Winston Yellen, the “angel-voiced frontman” of Night Beds, while he was in New York City a month or so ago for a sold out show at Pianos. So far we’ve learned Winston loves cooking, reading and hanging out with old men. What else does he fancy? Watch the interview above to find out!

Winston and the rest of the guys head out on the road in mid February. The tour includes dates with Indians and Cat Martino. Check out the full schedule HERE.

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.

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