Buried Beds
"This is one of those bands that's so good, you simply cannot understand why the world hasn't discovered it yet. Buried Beds is a pop group - no apology necessary, because doing pure pop well (i.e. not boring people to death) is a high-wire act not too many people can pull off. The band was formed in 2003 by Philadelphia indie music mainstay Brandon Beaver (how's that for a pre-existing stage name!) and Eliza Jones. Check out Tremble the Sails, to understand what talented people can do with piano, acoustic guitar, banjo and violin. The arrangements are lush and interesting, the lyrics focused and funny, and the vocal harmonies are Beach Boys good. All the vocals, by the way, were recorded at home, with the band members in their PJs."
The Spinto Band - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
