Catch the Buzz: Life in Bed

This Pittsburgh, PA-based quartet are the latest under-the-radar act blasting from our offices.

Who? Veteran Steel City musicians put their own twist on a tasty Whitman’s Sampler ofearly-’90s indie and alt-rock: shiny, intricate guitar tangles collide with driving power-chord riffage in a catchy loud-to-soft dynamic, and meet oft-mathematic, chattering rhythms as frontman Bill Merante’s whiney laments strike a familiar yet refreshing chord.

Their latest: Passed and Presents, out March 25 via Polar Recordings
