Based in Santander, Northern Spain, Beev Rations is the musical alter-ego of Alan James, a songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist, with a loving flair for psych-tinged, country & western flavoured folk jams.
As far as introductions go, you couldn’t ask for more from recent single ‘The Bigger Tricker’. A kaleidoscopic musical mosaic, it serves up a rather special brew of psych flavoured country & americana, rootsy folk and just a lot of off-kilter magic as it clip-clops along its merry way, like many a pioneer heading west out upon the plains. It’s warm, sunkissed and a wee bit weird but most importantly it is incredibly infectious and a joyous listen.
You can listen to ‘The Bigger Tricker’ below now & of you like that, there’s plenty more where that came from, over here!
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!)
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!!
