Buried Beds Headline at JB’s May 14

Published on the Deli Philadelphia – Saturday, May 14, 2011

The lustrous subtlety of Philadelphia’s folk/chamber-pop quintet Buried Beds always brings a smile to my face. There’s a bohemian beauty to their littoral spirit, where coasting radio-pop arrangements are interrupted by soaring strings, spirited piano plays, and percussion wails–just check their performance of “Breadcrumb Trail” below from their sophomore release, Tremble the Sails, for Knox ivi’s weekly Eleven O’Clock Rock webcast. And now, after depriving us of their golden sound for a bit, the five-piece, who toured with local indie faves Dr. Dog earlier this year, will finally play a proper headlining show tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. They’ll showcase some can’t-wait-for-it new tunes, perform some never-before old ones, and possibly throw in a cover (some special guests are coming along for the ride but you have to show up to see who). The brash, obscure synth-psychs of Philly’s one-man wonder Ape School, whose “Marijuana’s on the Phone” b/w “Weak in the Teeth” single drops this summer on Needless Records, will also work the stage with Buried Beds’ comrade Dr. Dog’s Eric Slick on drums, and New York’s prog-folkster collective In One Wind will take the opening slot. So drag yourself out of bed, enjoy the weekend and catch some Buried Beds before they leave us again for most of the summer. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave, 9pm, $10, 21+
