January 26, 2018 – What happens when an anti-social petty thief, a male hustler, and a delinquent runaway come together to join forces in the streets of NYC? One of two things, usually. Either the birth of a gang of misfit criminals, or a legendary rock & roll band. Luckily, for society’s sake, the latter has turned out to be true for Beechwood.
The New York psych / punk / glam rockers have officially released their new LP, Songs From the Land of Nod (out now on Alive Naturalsound). They recently shared their new video “Ain’t Gonna Last All Night” at Paper Magazine who wrote that the group “Have always had a talent for pulling back the curtain to reveal the dark underbelly of humanity.” Prior to the release, What Youth streamed the LP in full, calling the group “What you get when you mix the Ramones, Velvets, and BJM together in one misfit band.” Songs From the Land of Nod is out now.
