Night Beats have digitally released their recent Record Store Day album, Night Beats Perform The Sonics' 'Boom,' an exact track-by-track cover of The Sonics' classic 1966 album Boom. The video for "Let The Good Times Roll" from the album is currently available to watch here.
With this record, Night Beats, featuring Mike From Mystery Lights, Cole from Black Lips, and Julien from Warbly Jets, tread that line between keeping the legacy of this classic album burning bright, while injecting their own brand of earth-quakin' soul-shakin, maximum R&B.
This LP follows their recently released fourth studio album, Myth Of A Man. Released in January, it was their second for Heavenly Recordings following the release of Who Sold My Generation in 2016.
Named in homage to Sam Cooke's classic album, Night Beats began as a two-piece in 2009 after both Danny Lee Blackwell and James Traeger moved from Texas to Seattle, Washington and were soon picked up by Chicago’s Trouble in Mind Records (Ty Segall, Fresh and Onlys, Hex Dispensers, etc.) who released their debut album. Cult US West Coast label Burger Records were also on hand, releasing Night Beats’ first two albums via cassette. Having been fans of both records, Heavenly Recordings eventually signed the band in the summer of 2015.
Night Beats is currently on tour in the U.S. and will return to Europe in September. Tickets can be purchased here.
