It seems fair to say that folk-inspired music has, since the final stages of the last decade, experienced a much needed renaissance. From the continuing critical success of Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver and Laura Marling to the all- conquering juggernaut named Mumford & Sons, more and more budding musicians are making their mark with mandolins, banjos and acoustic guitars, and the boom shows no sign of dying down. If said boom helps albums like Country Sleep get the attention they deserve, then I hope it continues for at least another four centuries.

Night Beds is driven by the vision of Winston Yellen, a hyper-talented singer songwriter who wrote this album from a house in Nashville once owned by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. I like to think they would like Country Sleep. It’s a raw, haunting, beautiful piece of work that goes well with a spot of night-time soul-searching. »
