Eyelids:“Found at The Scene of a Rendezvous That Failed”

Portland’s Eyelids are comprised of indie stalwarts who once played with the likes of The Decemberists, Guided By Voices, Stephen Malkmus and even Elliott Smith.

This track was written by Larry Beckett and Tim Buckley in the ’60s, but was never released. From the opening notes it emotes like a vibrant symphony.

The song’s hints of R.E.M. shouldn’t surprise anyone, considering the input of that band’s bassist, Peter Buck. The electric guitars heighten the wall of the dreamy rock song.

Eyelids’ new album, Accidental Falls, comes out next Valentine’s Day and is sure to bring beautiful new music into your home.
