Mail-order CatalogueCurrent Artists Beechwood

What happens when an anti-social petty thief, a male hustler, and a delinquent runaway come together to join forces in the streets of NYC? One of two things, usually. Either the birth of a gang of misfit criminals, or a legendary rock & roll band. Luckily, for society’s sake, the latter has turned out to be true for Beechwood.

Brings the late ’60s into the ’00s. – GRUNGECAKE

It’s authentic rock ‘n’ roll! – POWER OF POP

A darkly shimmering rock ’n’ roll record of bruising timelessness. – The VILLAGE VOICE

They run a pretty wide gamut of scuzz from garage to glam to punk to indie that’s not that easy to date. – STEREOGUM

Recalls the best moments of the Zombies and Beach Boys, adding elements of garage and light tinges of the psychedelic. – POPMATTERS

Whether one perceives their sound as a more glam-oriented version of Television, a more intricate version of the Ramones, a dirtier version of the Blues Magoos or just something that could have jumped right out of the original Nuggets compilation, the trio’s gritty sound is impressive enough to speak for itself and nail its audience down. – DESTROY//EXIST

More shambolic psychedelia than the straight-up, guitar cut-and-thrust of The Bowery…glammy and trashy, as much of the best Manhattan rock always was. – i94 BAR

Songs From the Land of Nod is a haunted record, but one of no mean achievement, oozing with edgy cut-throat energy and cool, sleazy grace. The kind of record rarely heard since the prime of The Ramones and The Cramps, it truly doesn’t put a foot wrong. – IT STARTS WITH A BIRTHSTONE

Seems to piece together the best of rock throughout the ages, tying in temperate group harmonies, arcing melodies, meddling guitar lines, and concrete percussion to drive it all home. – BUFFALO BLOG

This easy psychedelia and vintage sounding looseness puts Beechwood in a sonic world not too distant from the ones inhabited by modern classics like Foxygen and Tame Impala. – THE DELI NY

The band is a mash up of a bunch of different rock that collectively just scream cool. – POP DUST

Their sound is a classic, hot and sweaty, raw and nasty, rock and roll spirit, that commands the room with a real classic NYC sound, like a mix of Velvet Underground, Ramones, and aptly for the night, the New York Dolls, and their killer cover of The Kinks’ “I’m Not Like Everybody Else” nearly blew the lid of the place. – PANCAKES & WHISKEY (live review w/David Johansen)

A balanced combination of ingenuity and nonchalance. – NRC (NL)

Has a talent for pulling back the curtain to reveal the dark underbelly of humanity, and their latest visual is no different. – THE PAPER MAGAZINE

Sneaky and poisonous at the same time, who would have dared to bet that 2018 would open with a great rock record? – PARIS MOVE (FR)

Has a pop elegance totally unknown to these modern times. – RUMORE (IT)

You will immediately hear their influences of The Stooges and New York Dolls while embracing the more pop side of the Velvet Underground. – THE FIRE NOTE

(HEROIN HONEY) Beechwood will sate your need for that certain something out of the ordinary and leave you breathless for whatever else they might have in store for you. – Left of the Dial/NOOGA.COM

Drummer and vocalist Isa Tineo and bassist Sydney Simons were arrested during an outdoor show for “reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, resisting arrest, obstructing government administration and disorderly conduct.” The whole thing was caught on social media and made its way to headlines in NY Daily News. Welcome to rock ‘n’ roll, boys. – WHAT YOUTH
