Night Beds

Country Sleep 2013 via DEAD OCEANS
a note about this track

Winston Yellen, the Colorado native and Nashville transplant who records as Night Beds, will release debut album Country Sleep next month. “Ramona,” a song from the album, is a warm and spacious piece of confessional, falsetto-laden country-rock, about halfway on the aesthetic spectrum between Bon Iver and Kathleen Edwards. -Stereogum
