“The Murphy Beds” album released, available on Bandcamp

In the spring of 2012, Eamon and Jefferson (that’s us, The Murphy Beds) recorded these ten tracks in our apartments on the Lower East Side and Park Slope, as well as in a studio space in Dumbo, seven floors up, right beside the Manhattan bridge. We had to wait for the trains to rumble by before we could start each take. In some of the quiet sections, close your eyes and you might even hear the D or N rumble by, taking Brooklynites home after work or out into the night, in search of good times and a midnight cocktail.  The songs are old traditionals, but we worked on them a lot, and gave them new melodic sections and textures. We sang everything in harmony. We picked out the best stuff and sent it off to Erick Jaskowiak in Nashville for mixing and mastering. Now, just in time for the holidays, here it is! Please enjoy, and share it with your friends.
