Just last week, Night Beds released their highly-anticipated second full-length album, Ivywild. Artistically, the 16-track album features a more experimental, R&B-influenced sound than their critically-acclaimed 2013 debut, Country Sleep. It was a bold move for Winston Yellen, who replaced his acoustic guitar with electronic grooves and obscure samples.
Now, fans can get a little insight into the brains of both Yellen and his brother Abe with the release of their 32-minute long mixtape, “Strangers in Paradise.” The sonic adventure is a flowing mixture compromised of beats produced by Abe Yellen, some b-sides from the recording of Ivywild, and fragments of tracks that were in heavy rotation in the studio during the making of the album.
