Motel Beds played ((91.3)) WYSO. It’s one of the finest NPR stations in the country—located in nearby Yellow Springs. The performance was in anticipation of the limited pre-release of “These are the Days Gone By” — 500 hand-painted LPs.
Yes, just in case you missed it, Motel Beds and Misra have teamed up with We Care Arts — a Dayton, Ohio-based non-profit dedicated to “changing disabilities into possibilities.” WCA has hand-painted 500 album covers for Motel Beds’ These are the Days Gone By — a collection of hits, rarities, live favorites, and never-before-heard Beds tracks, all (re)mastered by Carl Saff (Dinosaur Jr, Guided By Voices, etc).
This super limited edition of These are the Days Gone By is truly a special artifact. Once they’re gone, they’re gone… We may end up selling a limited amount online. Right now, we like that they are kind of hard to get… (sorry). Dayton Pre-Release Show details below…

Beds and Misra have been seeing some great press in the midst of all this. Thanks to Dave Obenour!
The wonderful folks of Dayton City Paper did a cover a story on Misra. The full feature details the label’s past, present, and future, as well as its recent move to label manager Leo DeLuca’s hometown of Dayton, Ohio. Dayton-tied Misra artists R. Ring (Kelley Deal), Motel Beds, and Crooks on Tape (John Schmersal) are also highlighted. Nearly 20,000 of these are circulating in the Gem City. If you’re in the area, do pick up a copy!
