Brass Bed, New Move

[INDIE ROCK] Louisiana's Brass Bed makes irresistible songs about death, disappointment and heartbreak. Borrowing the classic Beach Boys dynamic of "bummed-out lyrics swaddled in cheery arrangements," The Secret Will Keep You, the group's latest album, is a collection of unfussy guitar rock with frayed edges, as if the band were trying to keep the depression framing these tunes from enveloping them completely. That kind of push and pull, between the light and the darkness, is at the heart of most great pop, and this trio plays that particular game of tug of war with utmost skill.
