Country Sleep is officially out next week. There’s still time to pre-order the album. Head over to SC Distribution AND/OR iTunes to purchase this stellar record, a winter essential if we’ve ever heard one.
“Which, to come full-circle, brings us back to one thing Country Sleep holds in abundance: promise. It is dreamy and languid, warm and inviting in turn; a soulful work by a talented young singer-songwriter that hints at a bright and beautiful future.” – BBC
“There are no unnecessary extravagancies or pandering to genre-related expectations, just surprisingly self-assured songs which don’t mind if you listen to them or not. I cannot imagine listening to this record with anyone else; it’s an amazing, indulgent collusion between the listener, Yellen and the hidden melancholy within us all.” – Music Broke My Bones
“Welcome to the sound of Winston Yellen and Night Beds, who in one stunning ten-track debut album ‘Country Sleep’, have shown that there is plenty of life left in the world of American music if you have the voice, the songs and the gift to touch hearts and souls. Think of a space between Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters / Sun Kil Moon), Gram Parsons and the dreamier side of My Morning Jacket; a heavenly place of pure country soul, touched by an endearing innocence and honesty that can only come from someone still in their early twenties.” – Rough Trade Records
