Driven by a wide spectrum of influences, the music of Brass Bed moves easily through an eclectic mix of genres. From alt-country ballads and progressive rock hooks, to sticky sweet doo wop yearnings, Midnight Matinee is a unique mix of intelligently designed compositions that has left some critics describing the band as something akin to "The Beach Boys crossing paths with the Flaming Lips."
After several home-recorded recording projects, Midnight Matinee marks Brass Bed's first venture into a professional release. Recorded as a three piece featuring original members Christiaan Mader, Peter DeHart, and Jonny Campos, the album's layering and dubbing served as a de facto audition for future Brass Bed piano tickler Andrew Toups. The band has since expanded to a five piece to tackle their more demanding arrangements with the addition of full-time bassist Jacques Doucet.
Brass Bed will be touring throughout the year in support of Midnight Matinee, bringing their potent live show to the rest of the country.
