Kodiak Deathbeds
Kodiak Deathbeds Affairs of the Heart

Article written by Ged M - Sep 22, 2015

Kodiak Deathbeds comprise Amber Webber of Vancouver bands Black Mountain and Lightning Dust and Derek Fudesco, a Seattle resident and member of The Cave Singers and, previously, Pretty Girl Makes Graves. They’re long-time acquaintances, Amber having sung on the Cave Singers’ second album in 2009.

As Kodiak Deathbeds, they make simple and intense music, just Amber’s vibrato voice and Derek’s (mostly) acoustic guitar and that’s pretty much it. The songs are gentle and folky, apart from when they go shockingly electric on ‘Joseph’, Derek applying a rustic, finger-picking style of playing while Amber’s voice is heavy with emotion on standout ‘Gemini’, warm and glowing on ‘We Found A Home’, and intense and intimate on ‘Cross That Line’. It’s plain and wholesome, country in the sense of place rather than style, and works if you’re a fan of Amber Webber and her heartfelt style of singing, so simply adorned that the purity shines out.
