STREAM// Night Beds’ ‘Corner’ now on Spotify & all good streaming services . . .

Attendees at Night Bed’s European tour last year will be familiar with this live favourite, ‘Corner’. Winston Yellen and his full live band performed it many times on the road, and as Winston himself says: “We played it out live on our last trip to Europe—was fun as fuck.”

Noisey and Stereogum love this song already, and now Spotify does too. So you should definitely stream this on your Spotify-enabled device, and on August 7th buy a lovely CD or double-LP in limited edition white vinyl and gatefold sleeve. Enjoy!

Night Beds ‘Corner’ on Spotify

LISTEN // Night Beds Premier “Corner,” Third Single From ‘Ivywild’

unknown

“all cascading harmonies and sparkling sonics.”
Noisey

“head-turning R&B…complete with deep bass beats and auto-tuned vocals.”
NPR Music

“This isn’t Yellen’s first time going electro…but it’s the first time he’s done it alone, and it’s surprising how effective this approach is for him.”
The FADER

‘Tide Teeth’ has a real Drake, Weeknd vibe…It feels like warm bed on a snowy evening.”
Vulture (“10 Best New Songs of the Week”)

With less than a month away from the release of Ivywild, Night Beds is sharing a lovely new single called “Corner” via Noisey. It follows banger “Me Liquor & God” and melancholic beauty “Tide Teeth,” both of which established Night Beds’ adventurous and stunning new sound. All three singles are available now if you preorder through iTunes here.

Night Beds’ Winston Yellen recalls the spine of the song coming together rather quickly at Nashville’s Club Roar Studios in May 2012.

“I was thinking about Victoria Legrand/Stevie Knicks whilst singing. Their delivery is so legend. I absolutely adore Ben Kaufman’s Les Paul/Mary Ford guitar triplets along with Caleb Hickman’s sultry sax and Steven Holmes baritone electric guitar in unison.”

Ivywild is a truly collaborative effort with a makeshift team of 25 musicians, notably Abe Yellen, younger brother and closest friend. The thread that weaves through all of Yellen’s music and holds it together is his unmistakable voice – plaintive, yearning, soulful, heartbreaking. Yellen’s voice has a unique beauty matched by few of his contemporaries. It is a voice that reveals the qualities of a life spent listening to the greats of jazz and soul and yet sounds so utterly of this moment.

Night Beds will play live in support of Ivywild for the first time on July 31st at a special event in Portland, OR. Tickets and info can be found here. Stay tuned for more live performances to be announced soon. NPR is also sharing “Finished” on their podcast today. Check that out here.

LISTEN // Strand of Oaks Announce ‘Heal’ Deluxe Edition

“Some of the best new music we heard in 2014 was sitting right in our own backyard. With his band Strand of Oaks, Philly-based singer, songwriter and guitarist Tim Showalter released a knockout rock ‘n’ roll record called HEAL…this is Strand of Oaks’ most personal record, and it resonates with amplified power, soaring guitar solos and a confessional approach to songwriting.”
NPR, Public Radio’s 10 Breakout Artists of 2014

“…full-on, heart-on-sleeve vision-quest rock in the style of Showalter’s beloved Smashing Pumpkins, with a sprinkle of humility courtesy of the late Jason Molina.”
Grantland, – The Best (a.k.a. My Favorite) Music of 2014

“With its bombastic anthems and touching songwriting, the album is an incredibly revealing statement from a resilient artist.”
The AV Club, – The 20 Best Albums of 2014

“A fierce, heady triumph…this album is one of the true out-of-nowhere delights of 2014. One of its recurring themes is the power of music to get folks out of the tighetest emotional and psychological jams, and HEAL is just the kind of revelatory album to do the trick.”
American Songwriter, – Top 50 Albums of 2014

“This is big, bold rock music, even when it’s quiet.”
Aquarium Drunkard, 2014 Year in Review

Strand of OaksHEAL was released early last summer on Dead Oceans, kicking off a year of big firsts and miles racked up on the odometer. Tim Showalter paid a visit to NPR’s Tiny Desk – and to nearly every state (plus multiple continents) on a non-stop tour. As a result, Showalter’s most personal songs to date were allowed the chance to expand and change shape. That’s where the deluxe version of HEAL comes in – to celebrate this newfound life and share some fan favorites. It’s bookended with two covers, firstly a cover of Ryan Adams“My Wrecking Ball” taped in Showalter’s home of Philadelphia at WXPN, lastly a woozy rendition of The National’s “Pink Rabbits”. Rounding out the mix is a version of “Goshen ’97” from Acoustic Café and a life-affirming rendition of “Shut In” for Hear Ya. Finally, it features an alternate mix of “HEAL” at the hands of producer John Congleton that sounds like Showalter’s heart being dragged through sludge and fed through an amp.

The deluxe edition will be available as a digital-only release on Friday July 17. In addition to a full summer, Strand of Oaks has tacked on a heap of dates for this fall including shows with My Morning Jacket. All dates listed below.

WATCH // Destroyer Shares Video For “Girl in a Sling”, Album ‘Poison Season’ out August 28

Earlier today, Destroyer released the video for “Girl in a Sling” off of his upcoming album Poison Season, out August 28 on Dead Oceans Of the video, director David Galloway says:

“Bejar sings a lot about cities and girls and injury, sometimes all at the same time. Sometimes they are the same thing, as surreal novelists would have us believe. Besides, people like to see Dan sing – which he doesn’t do a lot of in this video, but he does do a little bit. We wanted to make a video that dealt with central Destroyer themes: to some, Destroyer is a lech; to some, he is an arsonist; to some, he is a savior. To me, he is the consummate comedian, but he resists that role. So we decided to go the opposite way and make something sad, something tragic, something that fits the new record. The adage “comedy equals tragedy plus time” is attributed to Carol Burnett’s mum. Or it might have been Steve Allen. Either way, I always want Dan to do physical comedy, but he resists. He’s a natural, though. He’s the Pacific Northwest’s Buster Keaton, and I hope one day to share that with the world. One day. For now, though, there’s just this sadness. This poison season.”

Pre-order Poison Season now on iTunes, Amazon, and your local indie store.

Destroyer will be hitting the road in September for a world tour. Full dates after the jump
