Most music fans are familiar with the musical sounds of Lafayette, Louisiana as it is the home to so many amazing zydeco musicians. Lafayette has a pretty incredible indie rock scene as well, and Brass Bed are one of the bands right in the middle of the scene.
Brass Bed are set to release their new album, In the Yellow Leaf, coming out on the Modern Outsider label out of Austin, Texas in the Spring of 2016, with the first single being available on October 30th. The band’s fourth album continues to build on their love of psychedelia, many things Seventies influenced and touches of the kind of calculated noise-pop you’d expect from a band like My Bloody Valentine. While he’s focused on his work with Brass Bed, lead singer Johnny Campos also plays with the zydeco band Lost Bayou Ramblers, who performed this summer at the XPoNential Music Festival.
Below, download “I Am Just A Whisper,” a swirling, soaring, guitar driven reverby rocker that sounds like The Feelies on steroids. #TurnItUp
