Night Beds – “Me Liquor & God”

"Me Liquor & God" marks a noticeable transition for the Nashville-based singer-songwriter Winston Yellen, who typically records Americana-tinged folk songs as Night Beds. The lack of stringed instruments on Yellen's latest single comes as a slight surprise -- although he was featured on Danish producer Tomas Barford's Love Me track "Sell You" this year,… More »

Foster The People Working With Amber Coffman, Soko, Night Beds

Foster The People are arguably the most boring successful band on the entire planet, and years after "Pumped Up Kicks," they are still showing up on festival posters in a bigger font-size than your favorite band. But they seem to be at least vaguely interested in becoming less boring. Talking to NME recently, the… More »

Night Beds – “Head For The Hills”

Country-rockers Night Beds put out a new album last year which came with some beautifully shot videos in the form of "Lost Springs" and especially "Ramona." "Head For The Hills" is a new single released today, and if you haven't heard them before, this intimate track with its outsized hook is a good… More »

Night Beds – “Lost Springs” Video

"Ramona," the last music video from the Nashville country-rockers Night Beds, was a lovely little indie-film story that didn't feature the band at all. The group's new video for "Lost Springs" has a very different concept -- it's all footage of the band on tour -- but it's got a similarly elegiac vibe working… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

My sentimental favorite this week is SD's video for the "New World Order" remix, with Danny Brown, mostly because I can't ever imagine myself getting tired of seeing Danny Brown, drunk and shirtless, too-tight tight pants sagging and hair blowing out, in a kitchen surrounded by Chicago teenage goons, having a wonderful time. That… More »

Night Beds – “Ramona” Video

Director Abraham Vilchez-Moran's video for Night Beds' searching country-rock song "Ramona" is basically a short indie film, one that has to tell its story without the benefit of dialog. This one tells the story of a crusty seafaring type who longs for a certain type of family togetherness, one that he thinks he'… More »

Watch Night Beds Cover Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own”

Night Beds is an atmospheric, confessional Nashville-based country-rock act, so naturally, ultra-clean Swedish synthpop of Robyn's "Dancing On My Own" comes to them naturally. The group recently took part in the A.V. Club's "A.V. Undercover" video series, in which bands cover unlikely songs, and this one certainly qualifies. This one has a few of… More »

Stream Night Beds Country Sleep

Night Beds is Winston Yellen, a Nashville resident who makes beautifully scraped-out country-rock, and who, if the ABC drama Nashville were real life, would get a job in Rayna James's backing band, impress her with his gritty purity, and unwittingly incite a battle between James and her label about whether she'd record any of hi… More »

Night Beds – “Ramona”

Winston Yellen, the Colorado native and Nashville transplant who records as Night Beds, will release debut album Country Sleep next month, and we've already heard his song "Even If We Try." "Ramona," another song from the album, is a warm and spacious piece of confessional, falsetto-laden country-rock, about halfway on the aesthetic spectrum betwee… More »

Night Beds – “Even If We Try” Video

Here's a dark new visual for Nashville's Night Bed's single "Even If We Try," a clip where one young man's night out tumbles into despair. It's direction by Rick Alverson who also headed up Sharon Van Etten's "Magic Chords" clip as well as the Tim Heidecker-starring film The Comedy. Head below to… More »

Night Beds – “Even If We Try”

Night Beds is a Nashville-via-Colorado Springs indie rock group that just signed to Dead Oceans, for whom they'll put out a single today. Led by singer-songwriter Winston Yellen, the group recorded the A-side "Even If We Try" at Johnny Cash's former Hendersonville home, and the resulting live take resulted in a spare, pretty ode that… More »
