Sunshine, sarcastic, and sullen, Brass Bed are a quartet of wide-eyed pop dreamers rifling through record bins and churning out recordings that double as rock and roll history lessons. Born and raised in Lafayette, Louisiana, their music elevates the unrestrained power pop of Big Star and the guitar heroics of Television with the 60's pop revivalism of bands like Dukes of the Stratosphear and the Elephant 6 collective. Their songs speak with a voice that is both thoroughly modern and reverent of the past. From this wealth of musical wisdom comes their new LP Melt White.
"Brass Bed's live set has become a refined, enthralling machine. Their shows are winding and propulsive and, above all, crowd-pleasing. As a performing entity, Brass Bed utilizes the varied weapons in its arsenal—dramatic shifts in dynamics keep each performance from falling into the irritatingly familiar loud-loud-loud paradigm that many festival acts fall into." --Off Beat.com
