One of the leading lights of the Dayton, Ohio music scene is the hyper-melodic Pop Rock outfit Motel Beds, which has been kicking around since the early ’00s, gradually building up a stack of fawning press notices and a loyal fan base.
By 2007, the quintet stabilized its lineup and began a prolific period that produced a trio of releases during 2009-2010, including the band’s first full-length album, Feelings. A year later, Motel Beds followed their debut LP up with their second album, Sunfried Dreams and, also in 2011, their third full-length, Tango Boys, for which Motel Beds hooked up with North Carolina-based imprint No More Fake Labels.
Perhaps due to the large amount of material put out in a short span, coupled with the band adding more fans with each successive release, Motel Beds partnered with Dayton-based Misra Records for These Are the Days Gone By, which collects some re-mastered highlights from the group’s past few recordingsMotel Beds plays a free show at MOTR Pub on Friday, Jan. 17.
