Transmissions :: The Motel Beds - Smoke Your Homework
The last time we checked in on Dayton Ohio's The Motel Beds they had just released the superlative Tango Boys LP and were included on our Top Albums of 2011 and justly so. Well The Beds are back with an LP choc full of British invasion fueled mid fi pop excellence that rivals their high water reaching Tango Boys with Dumb Gold. The bands eighth album was recorded at home in Dayton by guitarist Darryl Robins and features 10 tracks from songwriter's Paul John Paslosky and Tommy Cooper that find the prolific duo showcasing their gift for churning out songs that are both insanely catchy and filled with timeless pop hooks. Earlier this week the band issued Dumb Gold and premiered a video for the albums lead track and perfectly titled, Smoke Your Homework which you can view above.
Dumb Gold is available as a free download or even better throw down a measly 5 bucks for the physical copy at The Motel Beds Bandcamp page.
