Phew! We finished pressing the brand new LP for Philly-based Buried Beds just in time for their extensive tour starting TONIGHT in DC, at the 9:30 Club. They will be touring with Dr. Dog throughout the next couple of weeks, and then with Murder By Death through the end of March. Check out a list of their tour dates here.
Formed as a warehouse duo in 2003 by old friends Eliza Jones and Brandon Beaver, “Buried Beds” grew over several years into a chamber group of banjos, string quartets, electric guitars, broken glass, and aching harmonies. Their Americana influenced melancholy won them “Best Band” in Philadelphia Magazine’s “Best of Philly 2004” issue and a spot on the Believer Magazine’s yearly music compilation. They went on to record the lush and beautiful “Empty Rooms” in 2005.
Be sure to grab a hot-off-the-press copy of this brand new album, Tremble The Sails! On the album, Buried Beds trades delicate banjos for dueling guitars to create a landscape where love, death and your future-self throw a party. After recording drums and bass on the awesome tape machine at the Dr. Dog studio, the album was recorded almost entirely in their pajamas in Eliza’s living room. It was mixed by Nick Krill of The Spinto Band and came to life. The album is more alive than the first; maintaining a focus on careful arrangements but summoning the chaos and energy of Rock and Roll.
