The word “FLAMES” comes to mind when spinning In The Yellow Leaf, the 4th LP from Lafayette, Louisiana psych band Brass Bed. This is guitar rock of the highest order and the trio teamed up with producer/engineer Chris Woodhouse (Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall) at his The Dock Studio in Sacramento to create a fantastic album.
It’s currently streaming on NPR First listen here, but go ahead and give “I Am Just A Whisper” a play below. It’s a crisp recording that has every element in check. A jangled guitar driving the melody, fast-paced drums and more guitar goodness on top of that. Have I mentioned how badass Brass Bed’s guitars are? Check it:
