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.
Denver-based industrial duo Echo Beds began as a one-off live set played in a local warehouse in 2010. Sensing immediately that they’d only scratched the surface of their potential, the duo (comprised of Keith Curtis and Tom Nelsen) began experimenting with hand-built instruments and manufactured sounds—such as recordings of broken glass and a metal filing cabinet—in order to explore and interpret the sounds of industry as a sonic landscape.
