Regional Album You Should Own Bedtime – Bedtime
A goal at bt Media Group is to be always searching for new music. There are too many great regional artists out there to settle on mediocre. Our goal is to dig through the muck and find those killer bands you might not know about yet. Remember as we always say.."Your new favorite band could be the next one you listen too.."
This week we bring you something that was actually released in 2007 but has been on my radar ever since I lost the CD in 2010! bedtime puts together a piano driven lyric provoking indie vibe that pulls you in. The vocals are full of emotion and is distinct enough to always be identifiable immediately but still fit perfectly in the band. I have to be honest I don't much background on bedtime. Not much is out there about them. Bandcamp lists just the barebones information wise.
Listed as from Lexington KY Band members include: Andrew Ramey,Lucas Ward,James Friley,Josh Blaine
They list themselves as indie, post-rock. I call them awesome.
I saved the best news for last. Both releases are now on BandCamp and they let you pick the price you pay! Do yourself a favor and download both as fast as you can. And for the love of indie music Pay them something!
