Winston Yellen and his brother, Abe, returned to their hometown at the end of last year to perform a few songs for Fuel/Friends. The beautiful session includes a heartbreaking cover of Damien Jurado’s “Everything Trying,” plus two originals off Night Beds’ Country Sleep, released just yesterday. Watch all three songs above!
Night Beds are wasting no time in conquering the road and world of touring. Winston and the crew will perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (win tickets) this Friday, February 8. They also stopped by the NPR offices today for their first Tiny Desk concert. More details on that performance to come, but check out these photos – #1 & #2 – until you can watch the real thing.
Lastly, Winston talked to The Tennessean’s Kevin Walters on the Music City Podcast. Listen to the interview HERE.
“The guy is blessed with jump-out-of-the-gym vocal athleticism…the beautiful, new stranger in town.”
“Gregarious and unassuming in appearance, he looks like any other 23 year-old from Colorado Springs, but when he sat down at the microphone and opened his mouth to sing the a capella “Faithful Heights,” we all fell completely silent. Dumbstruck. That voice just flies out of him, with no warning….I think Winston’s efforts could be one of the most notable and promising of the year that lies ahead of us.” – Fuel/Friends
“There’s a lot of dudes out there with sad tales of heartbreak and failure, but to be honest, they never sound this good.” – MTV Hive

“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
