Night Beds: Ramona

When picking the Night Beds as their new band of the day last year, the Guardian explained the background to their first album. It explained that the band's singer Winston Yellen had
rented an isolated pre-civil war home – previously owned by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash – in Hendersonville on the outskirts of Nashville. There, immersed in the history of the house and region, he spent 10 months writing songs and recording them at the local Brown Owl studio.
The paper also said (in so many words) that the result was the sort of album that would appeal to sad old gits like me.
