Brass Bed Releases On Nilsson

Brass Bed has released an EP titled On Nilsson. The EP contains covers of four of Harry Nilsson’s songs, One, He Needs Me, He’s Large, and Don’t Forget Me.

The Lafayette, Louisiana, band decided to record the songs for the EP after appearing at a Harry Nilsson tribute. Embuing the songs with the group’s “trademark pop schizophrenia” – while ensuring that they can be performed live – took several months.

“Nilsson is a gifted songwriter, overshadowed by his famous friends.” explained Brass Bed’s frontman, Christiaan Maderstill, “His work hearkens back, in the best ways, to a time when the song itself was the prize. So it bears revisiting with new ideas for production.”

On Nilsson is available from Crossbill Records and can be downloaded from Amazon.com.
