Night Beats

Idioma disponível: inglês
A psyched-out garage band from Seattle, Washington, Night Beats play music that reflects the influences of vintage garage rock, dirty blues rock, '60s pop, and high-attitude roots music. Led by Danny Lee Blackwell, Night Beats' recordings are built on the twin foundations of his loose but soulful vocal style and the buzzy, psych-tinged attack of his electric guitar. The group's sound started out rough and swaggering on their self-titled 2011 debut, but they developed a tighter and more disciplined approach on 2016's Who Sold My Generation. After exploring their pop leanings on 2019's Myth of a Man, 2021's Outlaw R&B took them back to a more primal sound while showing a greater discipline than their earliest incarnation had. Night Beats was founded by singer/guitarist Danny Lee Blackwell (born Danny Rajan Billingsley), who is the sole constant member of the band's various lineups. Blackwell left his native Dallas for the Pacific Northwest in 2009; during his days in the Lone Star State, Blackwell played in a variety of bands, including the Pecan Sandies, the Tempers, and White Light Fever (the latter act released an album in 2007, Heavy Knife Blues). He went to Seattle to go to college, and soon made himself known in the city's rock scene; he persuaded a friend from Texas, James Traeger, to move to the Northwest and help him start a band. With Blackwell on guitar and vocals and Traeger behind the traps, they began playing out as a two-piece before recruiting bassist Tarek Wegner, a veteran of the bands Paris Spleen and Drug Purse. Night Beats soon set out on tour and made a name for themselves with their live show, and in 2010, they self-released a single, "H-Bomb." The 7" was picked up by Chicago indie Trouble in Mind Records, which reissued it just a few months later. A split 10" with the UFO Club on the Reverberation Appreciation Society label arrived in early 2011, followed by Night Beats' self-titled debut LP on Trouble in Mind. The trio remained busy, evolving their sound over various single and compilation releases and delivering their follow-up LP, Sonic Bloom, in 2013. In 2014, bassist Wegner was replaced by newcomer Jakob Bowden, and the following year Night Beats signed a deal with London's Heavenly Recordings. With a retooled lineup and a greater focus and clarity to their sound, they delivered their third LP, Who Sold My Generation, in early 2016. Night Beats went through a tumultuous period that led to Traeger and Bowden leaving the band, but for their next album, Blackwell teamed up with producer Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, who brought him to Nashville and recruited a band of first-call session players to help shape Blackwell's material. The result was the January 2019 album Myth of a Man, which toned down the harder edges of Blackwell's music in favor of a more pop-oriented feel that incorporated elements of vintage country and R&B. In spring of the same year he issued Night Beats Perform the Sonics' Boom, a note-for-note rendition of the 1966 second LP from a key influence. Spurred on by this return to his garage rock roots, sessions for Blackwell's next album took a turn away from the more polished tone of Myth of a Man, and the raucous Outlaw R&B was issued in 2021.
