    Brass Bed have already proven themselves adept at stretching the already pliable boundaries of pop music through their two full-length albums (2008's Midnight Matinee and 2010's Melt White) and brilliant interpretations of the work of pop genius Harry Nilsson and progressive Cajun provocateurs Feufollet. But the release of A Bullet For You, a 7" featuring three sharp new songs shows the quartet's songwriting abilities only getting stronger.

    The centerpiece is the title track "A Bullet For You", a slow burning reverb-heavy missive that swells gently with ghostly background noise and a heartfelt performance from front man Christiaan Mader. It bends easily into more driving territory, nearly blistering stereo speakers from the rhythmic chaos that supports the anxious howling of the song’s centerpiece guitar solo. "Bullet" is backed by a pair of equally sturdy b-sides that find the boys getting further lost in romantic headspace. They plead for care, caution, and delicacy with a lover’s spirit on "Every Time You Make Me", and beg to be delivered from alienation and fear on “Please Don’t Go”.

    This new 7" will hopefully settle the appetite that has been growing as Brass Bed fans await the release of the band's next album The Secret Will Keep You in 2013. Three songs may not seem like enough to quell music-hungry consumers around the world, but these are emotion-rich pop tunes that continue to satisfy. Don't be surprised if you find yourself returning to dig in again and again.

    A Bullet For You out September 18th, 2012 on Crossbill Records!
