WATCH // Night Beds Perform “22” for Paste Magazine

Paste Magazine shares Night Beds new Riverview Session, filmed outside in Austin during the storm that was SXSW last week. Night Beds chose to perform “22” and we can now say with certainty this band delivers regardless of the circumstances, still surprising us with their endless talent at every turn. Watch the session at PASTE.

Night Beds at SXSW

“Winston Yellen’s falsetto filled a packed Red 7, delivering lush and note-perfect renditions of their songs… Yellen is also quite visually engaging as a frontman. Who knew that sensitive crooner was such a badass?”Pitchfork

“As such It can be hard to find a quiet place, let alone find a quiet band that can hold the attention of a big bar crowd. And yet, the soaring and emotional vocals of Night Beds’ Winston Yellon has that capacity to enrapture the room into silence.”Soundcheck WNYC

“Best band: Night Beds. First gig of the first night, first goose bumps of SXSW.”Time Out New York

“…wrapped their set with a whisper, then a wallop. Impressive.”The Key WXPN

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

LSTN // The Luyas – ‘Animator’ Streaming at WNYC

The Luyas’ sophomore album Animator isn’t out until next Tuesday, October 16, but you can listen to it in full below or at WNYC’s Soundcheck where it premiered this morning! Pre-order the album HERE!

“At the heart is singer Jessie Stein’s dreamy melodicism and introspective words written as if a means of glassy-eyed escape from pain. In “Face” Stein ponders faith, intimacy, identity, singing “I wonder how true to life that I should be / Looking for nothing until I can speak.” Still, the beauty of Stein’s seductive, childlike coo as it floats over the music is what ultimately allows Animator to feel cathartic and full of hope.” – WNYC

The Luyas head out on tour on November 1! See all their dates, including a few shows with Destroyer, HERE. End your Luyas fun by listening to Jessie’s new Spotify playlist, Sleepy With Me.

Bowerbirds Announce New Tour Dates

Now two weeks into tour, the Bowerbirds announce a handful of new June dates. The tour takes them farther into the Midwest and East Coast, allowing you several more chances to see the group live. Thus far, the feedback surrounding their performances has been tremendous. Taking a new form in the live setting, Phil and Beth have grown the band to a five-piece; members include Leah Gibson, Yan Westerlund and Mark Paulson.  See the new tour dates below! Then watch the video of Bowerbirds performing “Overcome with Light” for WNYC’s Soundcheck above.

“Moore and Tacular’s typical commingling of voices, strings, and primitive beats is merged with tastefully synthesized sounds, and while the subject matter remains the same—seasons, love, meadowlarks, frost—their musical breadth has widened considerably. For those who have watched Bowerbirds grow over the years, this show is mandatory. For those who haven’t, do yourself a favor: Start with this crown and work your way back to the foundation. You will not be disappointed.”Portland Mercury
