Album Review

Although they've been making sugary sweet indie rock for well over a decade now, Dayton, Ohio garage revivalists Motel Beds have somehow managed to remain one of music's best-kept secrets. After quietly putting out five full-lengths and a handful of EPs over the past five years, the increasingly prolific band returns with These Are the Days Gone By, a compilation that offers listeners something of a survey course in the band's sunny, good-vibes rock & roll. With songs going all the way back to their 2004 debut, as well as some unreleased material and alternate versions, the collection covers the entirety of the band's quiet tenure in the Dayton music scene.

Although the initial lineup, consisting of singer Paul John Paslosky, guitarists Tommy Cooper and Patrick Himes, bassist John Lakes, and drummer Ian Kaplan, disbanded in 2005, the band returned, reinvigorated,...
