Mile Marker: Download exclusive Night Beds songs recorded in Denver

Since releasing the debut album “Country Sleep,” in 2013, Night Beds — a project of Colorado-raised musician Winston Yellen — has seen praise from Pitchfork, NPR and most recently hit the road with Lord Huron. Yellen’s heartbreaking croon, Nashville-influenced indie-country and lonesome lyrics cut deep and stick with you.

While in Denver for his second Colorado show at the Hi-Dive last Summer, Night Beds stopped into Denver’s Uneven Studio for a Mile Marker session with Reverb. Yellen recorded three tracks for the Mile Marker — two from “Country Sleep” and a twangy cover of Gillian Welch’s “The Way the Whole Thing Ends.”

Like the rest of “Country Sleep,” Night Beds’ Mile Marker tracks are filled with a somber openness, which Yellen said comes from growing up in Colorado Springs.

“Colorado is something that I get most of my inspiration from,” Yellen told Reverb early last year. “There’s kind of a magic there that’s kind of intangible.”

Night Beds stops at Denver’s Ogden Theatre on Feb. 21. The band is opening for Lord Huron, a likeminded and breakout indie-folk act that recently headlined the Denver Post’s Underground Music Showcase and sold out a Fillmore Auditorium show with Alt-J.

    Umm…these pictures aren’t of Night Beds. I have no idea who that band is, but it’s not Night Beds.

      Hey Rachel,

      You need to scroll through the slideshow to get to the Night Beds photos. They start around photo 12. The earlier photos are of the opening band at the Night Beds show last year.
