There’s one thing guaranteed to find success in 2015, and that’s a 23 year old singer songwriter lamented his troubled life of love and loss. Vulnerable and expansive, Winston Yellen’s Night Beds is the sound of a journey and the documentation of the emotions that contort with it. There’s nothing revolutionary to a man with a guitar, but there’s nothing revolutionary about human experience – the talent is in making it sound personal and universal at the same time. Desolate and lonely, Yellen’s vocals trigger wintry chills with a sense of spring hope through its expansiveness and openness, the alt-rock twang and electro beats quivering together with gliding gravitas. New album Ivywild is a collaborative effort, performed and produced with a makeshift team of 25 musicians, released on August 7th 2015.
