Good Morning! Good Morning! If you missed it before, here’s your chance to listen to Night Beds perform live on World Cafe. In addition to their interview with the ever-trusty David Dye, the band played a number of songs from their Dead Oceans debut Country Sleep. The list includes “Faithful Heights,” “Ramona,” “Even If We Try” and “Head For The Hills.” There is also an exclusive web version of “22.” Stream at NPR.
“The lyrics may have come from Nashville, but the record’s open, dusty sound is pure Colorado. Yellen brings his amazing, wide-ranging voice to this installment of World Cafe, playing songs from Country Sleep as well as a track that didn’t make the album.” – David Dye / World Cafe
Night Beds are currently on tour, playing many a European venue. You can see all of the upcoming tour dates and ticket links HERE.
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.
“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

Night Beds stopped by Room 125 at Lawrence High School for a another beautiful live session (aren’t they all, really?) and interview. It’s all for an ongoing project film & media students started awhile ago. You can watch “Lost Springs” and “Was I For You?” in our Youtube playlist above. I personally recommend paying special attention to the 1:50 mark in “Was I For You”; Winston and Caleb work some special harmonizing magic. Siggghhhh.
