The Motel Beds

By Kyle Melton

In a year thus far that has witnessed numerous excellent local releases, The Motel Beds offer their second for 2010. Following up on the January release of their sprawling sonic episode, Moondazed, the Beds return this weekend with its follow-up, Feelings. While more focused than their previous release, Feelings continues to uphold the band’s sonic trademarks: the sprawling psychedelia of opener “Mr. Salad Days”; the infectious melodies of “81 Sun” and “Is This On?”; the cascading riffs of “Lights On.” In dispensing with the mixed-fidelity format of their last release, the band delivers an incredibly concise album without compromising their core aesthetic. With the disc coming out on local imprint Fictionband Mechanics, The Motel Beds stand at the forefront of the current Dayton crop. The Motel Beds will celebrate the release of Feelings with a show on Saturday, August 28 at Blind Bob’s, 430 E. Fifth. St. Also scheduled to perform are Astro Fang, 8-Bit Revival, Electric Banana and By Way of Sunstorm. Doors open at 9 p.m. and admission is $5 for 21 and up.
