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

Earlier this year David Dye host of NPR’s World Cafe featured Phosphorescent’s new album Here’s To Taking It Easy calling it “the soundtrack of my spring 2010″ and describing the music as “a shambling psychedlicized alt-country that seemingly sparkles with the band’s interplay.” We’re excited to announce that Phosphorescent will be the guest on World Cafe performing live on the show tomorrow, August 26. Recorded in Philadelphia at the studios of host station WXPN, World Cafe is nationally syndicated and can be heard on over 200 radio stations nationwide. Tune in on your local NPR affiliate or you can stream the show through the WXPN website HERE.
