I love the melancholy magnificence of Devotchka and Lost in the Trees. There’s a plaintive quality in the voices of Nick Urata and Ari Picker that’s hard to match. Winston Yellen of Night Beds now joins my list of favorite male vocalists. “Faithful Heights,” the a capella track which opens Night Beds’ debut album, Country Sleep, may be the most beautiful thing I’ve heard this year. You can stream it below. Hear more at World Cafe, Aquarium Drunkard and Fuel/Friends. My favorite track on the album is “Even If We Try,” which can be streamed at Night Beds Official Site.
