CD Review: Brass Bed “Melt White”

Unlike their last album, Louisiana-based Brass Bed has gone full neo psychedelic here on Melt White – and that’s a great thing for us audiophiles. Opening with the gorgeous harmonies on “Aria” it adds a strong chord to reach its crescendo. Then, the whimsical “People Want to Be Happy” is 10cc styled pop with many layers tripping over each other. It then delivers a blistering guitar break full of unfettered creativity. “Miniature Day Parade” incorporates a pile of influences and textures, and the next several tunes are worthy of any Elephant Six alumni.
