Now Shipping! Formed in 2010, Echo Beds is comprised of Keith Curts and Tom Nelsen. The project began as a one-off live set played in a local warehouse and quickly grew from there. Sensing immediately that they’d only scratched the surface of their potential, the duo began experimenting with hand-built instruments and manufactured sounds—such as recordings of broken glass and a metal filing cabinet—in order to explore and interpret the sounds of industry as a sonic landscape. Over the years Echo Beds has made a name for themselves with their visceral and abrasive live shows that often include a modified oil drum as percussion. Buried Language should be viewed as a kind of exorcism steeped in metaphor and brimming with social commentary. The album title references widespread overnight evictions and boarded-up rehearsal spaces/ DIY venues across the country. It deals with a lack of transparency, and is the culmination of all the heartbreak, frustration, grief and rage, and the cyclical nature of DIY space closures. Left to our own devices, we start over in a new underground. Order.
