Beds have been receiving a lot of great press as of late; a small smattering is listed below.

Motel Beds roped a couple more great reviews today:

In addition, the band recently received the following fantastic press:

“Motel Beds … one of music’s best kept secrets … These Are the Days Gone By feels like the perfect way to jump into their sprawling discography, and new fans couldn’t ask for a better-sounding or more thoughtfully compiled portal to the world of everlasting summer that the Beds have created for themselves.

Praise Continues to Roll in for The Black Swans’ “Occasion for Song”  

Posted at 6:21 pm

The Black Swans newest release, Occasion for Song, has been receiving a lot of praise, including a great cumulative score from Metacritic. In addition, Consequence of Sound described the album as “…the band’s most shatteringly personal offering to date.”  AllMusic gave the album 4/5 stars and stated “He [DeCicca] uses allusion, metaphor, and history to weave his own hybrid mythology; none of his songs feel strictly confessional — even if they are — which is part of what makes The Black Swans’ sparse Americana so compelling.”

Just a reminder:  you can purchase the album from Grandma Misra’s online store.
