“Ramona” — Night Beds

John Mayer hasn’t done much for me over the last few years – musically or personally. However, this past week he remedied those past woes when he recommended listening to “Ramona” by Night Beds on his Tumblr page. The creative power and voice behind the folk-rock group and Nashville-native, Winston Yellen, brings something both fresh and familiar to the table. This track — and by extension the singer-songwriter’s debut album, Country Sleep — doesn’t necessarily feature anything sonically groundbreaking, but that doesn’t take away from a distinctively rootsy and ephemeral sound laced throughout with Yellen’s impressive, Ryan Adams-esque vocals.

So give a quick nod of gratitude to Mr. Mayer and enjoy the hypnotic quality of my latest musical obsession, as the song’s muse struggles with her separation from family, friends and ultimately her spirituality.
