It’s mushrooms’ season, have a ration with Beev Rations! 

Take a walk in the park and see what’s grown on the green. In a joyful and subtle way, this very quiet tempo song mixes blues, jazz, country and folk with elements and essences of Mersey sound, psychedelia and California echoes. The result is a tasty musical plate… with mushrooms, of course. A fine delicatessen specially prepared by Alan James for you. Bon apetit!

MUSHROOMS, The new single from Beev Rations, releases in January, 2018

Mushrooms

Mushrooms,
they came out of the green,
from one day to another
and here they are.
Here they are.
Nobody called them,
but it is just the same.
Mushrooms have appeared (came on you)
in their own place
in the park.
They couldn’t appear in the sand.
Nobody saw them on the water.
They’re only waiting for righ conditions
to come alive on your green.
So if you gotta let them grow within you,
let it be the mushroom of love,
the mushroom of love,
the mushroom of love,
eat the mushroom of love.
Nice mushroom?
Tasty mushroom?
Come on.
Come on.

REVIEWS:

Good Wood: “A smooth and calming intro that leads to a vocalist who performs with a lot of passion and feeling put into the lyrics which are well composed and tell a good story”.

Why don’t you?: “This is a really solid blues song. I really like the croning in this song. The song has a really strong blues vibe that you don’t hear a lot nowadays, but it was really authentic. I really like the vocals and the instrumentals a lot in this song”.

The Bigger Tricker: “This song is very interesting because it’s so different from everything else. It’s very difficult to categorize because it has so many different influences and covers so many genres. It sounds both modern and like classic songs. It’s very timeless and unique”.

Hot burrito #1 (I’m your toy): “I really liked the vocals in this song. I thought they were very smooth and had a nice delivery. I think the guitar complimented well and sounded very nice”.

THE BIGGER TRICKER – Beev Rations’ New Single, RELEASED!

Go West… of the Multiverse!! With Beev Rations’ new single: THE BIGGER TRICKER. 

Beev Rations strikes again with another brilliant surprise, this time even more unlabelable and, by the way, mostly unbelievable. (Spoiler alert now!)

This is in fact an experimental song, kind of kaleidoscopic musical mosaic, an avant-garde and sensational pocket rock-suite where the blend and fussion of styles and sounds reach a higher point, just starting with unexpected ambient/new age vibes to end with a lively and very tasty root-flavored Country & Western, passing across some fine folk and R&B notes in strings and cool sound effects, all of it clothing a vibrant and true vocal performance by Alan James. Then, you can call it Alt Country if you want it, or simply Indie in pure state.
Anyway, have a good sonorous voyage, enjoy also the pics and keep an eye on the signs… you never know when this man is saying much more than what you could figure out at a first glance!!

THE BIGGER TRICKER, The new single from Beev Rations, now released and avalaible in Bandcamp.

The Bigger Tricker

Many of you
play little tricks.
Then you believe
no one is watching you
but I Know every moment
before you make a move.
Many of you
play your little tricks
but I play the biggest trick.
Call me the bigger tricker,
call me the biggest tricker.
Call me, cos I know
that I am the only one.

REVIEWS:

WHY DON’T YOU? – BEEV RATIONS’ NEW SINGLE, PUBLISHED!

This is an original and powerfull blend of Blues, Country and Mersey sound, with the special, thrilling, vocal treatment from Alan James. It can be also framed in styles as neoclassic rock, roots rock or simply indie. Guitars, played by Alan too, give the perfect counterpoint to the melody.

REVIEWS:

“This is a really solid blues song. I really like the croning in this song. The song has a really strong blues vibe that you don’t hear a lot nowadays, but it was really authentic. I really like the vocals and the instrumentals a lot in this song”.

“This is a very melancholy blues song. The harmonies are fantastic. The tone is slow and somber but the guitars and metallic and lonesome. This band knos exactly what they’re doing with the bottleneck slide”.

“The voice has that old fashioned sound, and the instruments are a bit retro. Good lyrics that I can easily understand. All elements are perfectly suited for each other”.

“This guy is the second coming of bob dylan hands down. I could see listening to this song in a quiet little bar in the mountains. Just me and a few friends all playing a hand of cards.”

WHY DON’T YOU?, The new single from Beev Rations, now released and avalaible in Bandcamp. 13-8-2017

Cartel Why don't you-Press

Why don’t you?

Why don’t you love me my moon?
Why don’t you say you come soon?
How come that you’re not the same
I want your love back again.

Why don’t you kiss me
making love to me at night?

(Instrumental)

And Why, just why don’t you kiss me,
making love to me all night?
My heart is full of your memories.
You know our love’s true for sure.
Oow. oow. oow.

Come to the beach with BEEV RATIONS and enjoy this new and salty song:

“Melted Love (unreleased demo)”

A new surprise from Beev Rations to its beloved followers, this is a little demo of the original song called “Melted love”.

Take a walk with Alan James by a beautiful beach of El Sardinero (Santander, Cantabria, Spain), in full spring, while you listen to an evocative, cadentious and (of course) salty tune, sung with the charming and thrilling style of the band’s vocalist, instrumentist and composer.

Although you’ll go near the sea, you won’t get wet… or, well, I don’t know… 😀

Melted Love (unreleased demo)

Mary, Mary,
is it too late for me to marry you?
Longing lonely,
could I prevent it by loving you?

I swear it’s nothing wrong
or nothing right,
in wanting giving you love all night
and melt together being one.

GOOD WOOD – Beev Rations’ third single, released!

Beev Rations’ new single:

GOOD WOOD

Avalaible in Bandcamp and CD Baby

Good wood is the new and original song by Beev Rations. Being their third single, will be released in April, along with the official video.

Like the music of this indie band -in general terms-, this song can be framed in the styles of neoclassic rock, roots rock or simply indie. More concretely, it is a kind of mixture of melodic pop-rock, alternative folk/country, blues and standard, beaming the aroma of the 50s-60s, this time bringing that special -as subtle as sassy- humoristic touch from Alan James, right there where you least expected it.

Lead voice here, in its smooth, temperate and warm mode, is catchy aswell as expressive and suggestive, with the just point of rascality that fits very well with the naughty lyrics this peculiar story shows, through unexpected turns that even reach (and touch) the surreal and hiperbolic.

The well-orchestrated and colorful combo formed by acustic guitars, bass and drums, sounds evocative and raptured from the beginning and comes to shine especially in certain ecstatic passages edged by the placid notes of an ethereal (stratospheric on the solo part) lead guitar.

So turn up the volume and sure you’re gonna feel something (don’t know what or how) about this!

Full release will come in the coming weeks, along with the official video in YouTube. Also, this record will be available for digital download.

 Lyrics:

When the sky is blue

the birds are singing,

the roses leave their smell

as we make it well.

To everywhere I go

the beings are being

and so we’ll love as long as

this bed hold on.

Then put your hand right here

and I will put mine there,

There’s nothing

that we could not reach

while I am over you

or you over me.

A day will come

when we’re just married,

we’ll call a carpenter there,

to mend our bed.

 Lyrics:

You may be sweet and nice

But that won’t keep you warm at night

Cause I’m the one who showed you how

to do the things you’re doing now

He may feel all your charms

He may hold you in his arms

But I’m the one who let you in

I was right beside you then

Once upon a time you let me feel you deep inside

And nobody knew, nobody saw

Do you remember the way you cried?

I’m your toy I’m your old boy

But I don’t want no-one but you

To love me no I wouldn’t lie

You know I’m that kind of guy
