Beechwood Announce New Album ‘Inside the Flesh Hotel’




NYC psych/pop/glam band, Beechwood, have officially announced their new LP, Inside the Flesh Hotel, due out June 8th on Alive Naturalsound. The lead single, “Bigot In My Bedroom” recently premiered at Bandsintown, who called the song “an upbeat masterpiece” with “spirited coos and handclaps.” New Noise Magazine also premiered the band’s latest single, “Nero,” calling it “gritty and captivating.” With the recently released Songs From the Land of Nod LP garnering enthusiastic reviews across the board (Stereogum, PAPER, The Village Voice, AllMusic, The Deli Magazine & more) Beechwood deliver their follow-up, with stronger production and even catchier pop songs.

From two-minute pop perfection, to the sound of drug-induced nightmare psychoses, the trio’s music hits you where it hurts. Gordon Lawrence (guitar/vox), Isa Tineo (drums/vox) and Sid Simons (bass/vox) are drawing their rock n’roll line in the dirt… Which side are you on?

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
