ECHO BEDS’ SOPHOMORE ALBUM, ‘BURIED LANGUAGE,’ NOW AVAILABLE FOR STREAMING

Buried Language, the sophomore effort from Denver-based industrial duo Echo Beds (comprised of Keith Curts and Tom Nelsen), is an album indebted to the past. Inspired by a tumultuous end to 2016, in which the pair were locked out of their rehearsal space and their gear was held hostage by city officials, Buried Language is steeped in rage and embittered self-reliance. Listen to the album in its entirety via Brooklyn Vegan today.
