Of course it’s cool to be part of the music scene in eg New York, Melbourne or London, but also in less attractive locations artists put their heart and soul into creating songs for eternity. Meet bedposts., a DIY emo band hailing from the Netherlands and Britain, but based in Hoofddorp, a place where you can’t actually record a track without being bothered by the noise of planes from the adjacent Schiphol Airport. Still, Pietro and Eve succeeded, although you do hear other alienating sounds on their second mini-album Life’s Still Strange. It’s lo-fi, basic, raw, and reminds me a bit of the old Bright Eyes work. Scott Pine guests on the last track. Listen below.
