Buried Beds

Formed as a warehouse duo in 2003 by old friends Eliza Jones and Brandon Beaver, “Buried Beds” grew over several years into a chamber group of banjos, string quartets, electric guitars, broken glass, and aching harmonies. Their Americana influenced melancholy won them “Best Band” in Philadelphia Magazine's "Best of Philly 2004" issue and a spot on the Believer Magazine’s yearly music compilation. They went on to record the lush and beautiful “Empty Rooms” in 2005.

Formed as a warehouse duo in 2003 by old friends Eliza Jones and Brandon Beaver, “Buried Beds” grew over several years into a chamber group of banjos, string quartets, electric guitars, broken glass, and aching harmonies. Their Americana influenced melancholy won them “Best Band” in Philadelphia Magazine's "Best of Philly 2004" issue and a spot on the Believer Magazine’s yearly music compilation. They went on to record the lush and beautiful “Empty Rooms” in 2005.

Deeply embedded in the Philadelphia music scene, Beaver was a founding member and guitarist of the avant-prog rock outfit “Make a Rising” and is a tenor in the indie-rock glee club “Silver Ages.” Jones plays with the raucous old-time City Wide Specials, and the art-pop Mural and the Mint and has sung on at least a dozen recent albums including the latest releases from “Man Man”, “Dr. Dog” and “Me Without You..

They were joined in 2004 by Thomas Bendel (drummer extraordinaire) and Tom Mallon (bass magic) and soon after by Hallie Sianni (string siren). After many years of goodtimes, Mallon retired to be "#1 dad" and conquer entertainment news and was replaced by the handsome Dave Hartley (War on Drugs/BC Camplight).

On their sophomore album "Tremble the Sails", Buried Beds trades delicate banjos for dueling guitars to create a landscape where love, death and your future-self throw a party. After recording drums and bass on the awesome tape machine at the Dr. Dog studio, the album was recorded almost entirely in their pajamas in Eliza's living room. It was mixed by Nick Krill of The Spinto Band and came to life. The album is more alive than the first; maintaining a focus on careful arrangements but summoning the chaos and energy of Rock and Roll. « hide
