Album Review

On their fourth LP, 2016's In the Yellow Leaf, Louisiana indie trio Brass Bed play with the urgency of a hard-working road act, yet remain faithful to their core of finely detailed songcraft. When the Lafayette-based group first emerged in 2008, they melded Sloan-like power pop aspirations with a winning spirit of laid-back indie experimentalism. Subsequent releases found them alternately channeling their inner Big Star and turning their melodic sense toward more aurally textural arrangements. Recorded in California with Chris Woodhouse (Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees), the ten tracks on In the Yellow Leaf offer something ultimately noisier and more cathartic than on previous outings. Songs like "Be Anything" and "Mind the Gap" open up the faucets of reverb, turning riffy, almost garage pop tunes into a wily, epic jams. The edgy, minor-key stunner "I Am Just a Whisper" roils with electricity and is one of the darker tracks they've put to tape. Elsewhere, slow-burning ballads like "Yellow Bursts of Age" and "Keep On" tread nimbly the outer rims of space rock, shimmering up to widescreen crescendos. But underneath the heroic reverb swells and insistent rhythms, Brass Bed still hold true to the innate pop sensibilities and structures that have set them apart in the past. Plenty of guitar bands delve into exploratory psychedelia, but without thoughtful songwriting, that's all it really is. Brass Bed have flown under the American indie radar for nearly a decade and while they may continue to do so, they can be confident they've added yet another quality release to their canon.

Awesome Album

Love the grooves! Support the band buy the record. I also ordered it on vinyl. Great alternative music so chill.


Formed: 2004 in Lafayette, LA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

Louisiana-bred indie outfit Brass Bed emerged in the mid-2000s, bubbling under the radar in their hometown of Lafayette. Toiling away at cleverly arranged, occasionally explosive power pop in a town celebrated for its Cajun music, their plight was not unlike another, now legendary rock group fighting upstream in 1970s Memphis. Like Big Star, Brass Bed's influences are more in line with the Beatles and Beach Boys than Beausoleil. Following 2008's self-released Midnight Matinee, they found a home with...
