Brass Bed hails from Lafayette, but the band's suddenly ballyhooed third coming, The Secret Will Keep You (Crossbill/Off the Air), bears a Lone Star birthmark: It was conceived in Austin last year at Spoon drummer Jim Eno's Public Hi-Fi studio, delivered live to tape by Shearwater drummer/engineer Danny Reisch and welcomed into the world at last month's screaming South By Southwest industry extravaganza. Louisiana's best-kept secret now has Texas-sized aspirations, with Spin singing its praises, The New Yorker circling its calendar and NPR comparing it to Wilco. (Based on the decibel levels and melodic ease of three advance tracks, opener "Cold Chicory" and tandem cuts "I'll Be There With Bells On" and "A Bullet For You," it seems an appropriate boast.) Not officially due until April 23, the album's homecoming is a "secret release soiree" at Lafayette's Theatre 810 on April 12-13, expanded to two nights after tickets quickly evaporated. Consider this a sonogram, saving the band's New Orleans fans two weeks of anticipation and a two-hour drive. Call for ticket information. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
