Radio Free Silver Lake is thrilled to present Brass Bed at the Hotel Café this Saturday night July 20 and we have tickets for one lucky reader (and a guest) to check out the show. See details below to enter for your chance at tickets.
Straight up one of the best bands touring these days, Brass Bed released an album earlier this year that took their psychedelic indie pop to a new level. Smart, moody textured guitar music with pretty melodies and a few pop hooks like The Secret Will Keep You is what the RFSL staff has been enjoying about this year’s albums. The songwriting on the Danny Reisch produced album reflects on themes of becoming a ‘real adult,’ the contrast of confidence with an undercurrent of uncertainty. NPR Music’s Robin Hilton favorably compared the album to Wilco “Taking a page from the Wilco playbook (think Summerteeth or Yankee Hotel Foxtrot), Brass Bed wraps dark themes in sunny melodies, adding a layer of mysterious synth sounds before letting the mix dissolve into glorious chaos.” The Secret Will Keep You is out now on Crossbill Records.
