Bedhead was an indie rock band active in the 1990s (1991-1998). Their first album, WhatFunLifeWas, is often cited on critics’ lists as one of the best indie albums of the 1990s. Bedhead’s music was generally subdued, with a polyphonic sound based on the interlocking of single-line melodies played by three electric guitars and one electric bass guitar (often played with a capo), nearly always using clean (undistorted) tones.

The group’s vocals were often delivered in such a low key manner that they were quite difficult to decipher. This unusual sound was dubbed by some critics as “slo-core,” referring to the slow tempos of many of the band’s songs, a label to which band members objected in interviews.

In reality, many of the group’s songs do not remain slow and quiet throughout, instead beginning very slowly and quietly and gradually building in intensity and volume. Bedhead also experimented with unusual time signatures, with some songs in 6/8 or 3/4 meter.

If you haven't got "Bedhead" which I seriously doubt, then by all means go ahead. Probably one of the best slow-core / Down-tempo band I came across after [ Sophia ]. Fans of [ American Chamber Music ] ~ [ Swell ] ~ [ Picastro ] ~ [ Clogs ] ~ [ Grand Savoy ] and the likes should enjoy " Bedhead " thoroughly. "

Review for Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
