Quick Overview

Bed of Seeds is the second full length record from Height with Friends, and the first to have the proper feel of a collaborative effort. Height tells us that they’ve got a revolving cast, but in this LP he does not need to – the album is deeply rooted in everything.

Details

It was recorded in a cabin out in western Maryland in 2009, after Baltimore Highlands was released via Wham City earlier in the year. Dan Keech (Height) first constructed all the harmonies and melodies, and then layered his signature measured-cadence stories over top. Live instrumentation was then added by Mickey Free, Travis Allen, and Dan. Back-up vocals from Emily Slaughter, Gavin Riley, and Mickey Free are also heavily felt throughout. The cover art is a photo taken by Melody Often, designed by Emily Slaughter (HWF/AK Slaughter), with font by Nolen Strals (Double Dagger/Post Typography). The image transcends the idea of infinite beginnings, much like the blues, hip hop, rock, soul, pop, country, pop and R&B plucked from everything and tossed into the mix. It’s clear this one begins before the roots. The idea of Height with Friends has always embodied community in a way that music in Baltimore nurtures, and this is the story of a hip hop group being heard from within. Track listing: (side A) 1.
