[mp3] The Motel Beds: “Tropics of the Sand” (feat. Kelley Deal)
September 18th, 2012 by Matt
In the first few months of YANP’s existence, I loved a little Ohio band called The Motel Beds. They put out an EP called Hasta Manana (which is now a free download) that was full of great tunes. Then the Motel Beds went on a hiatus of about five years and I completely forgot to ever see if they were up to anything. Seemed like they’d gone the way of thousands of other bands and flickered brightly, then called it quits. But nope. The Motel Beds kept going and have been incredibly prolific lately. Last year they released Tango Boys, which included this great track with fellow Ohioan Kelley Deal of the Breeders.
Now that I know the Beds are back in action, I can’t wait to see what else they’ve got in store for us. They just released a free single of “Ladder Dancer” online, so I know they’ve still got their noses to the grindstone.
