Motel Beds – Western Son
Dayton, Ohio’s Motel Beds (facebook/twitter) managed to produce an album earlier this year in Sunfried Dreams that got their local scene all-a-chatter with their simple blues and rock’n'roll tunes and for a damn good reason. Each track is led by a beautiful rocking guitar riff, with everything else following up with that rock swagger that makes you remember why you fell in love with guitar music in the first place.
Our friends over at Turntable Kitchen are releasing my favourite track from Sunfried Dreams, Western Son, on 7″ vinyl (with UK Surfjerk as the b-side) as part of their new Musical Pairing project – it’s a bit like a singles club except along with the vinyl you get some original recipes, a premium dry-food ingredient, and a download of an Turntable Kitchen-curated mixtape. Yum.
