Unlike his first homemade recordings, the latest album from rapper Dan "Height" Keech wasn't conceived in middle-school classrooms. Or in a Catonsville basement with his high school group, the Wounds, as was his first proper album. The new effort, "Bed of Seeds," came together two years ago in a cabin in Deep Creek Lake. He was with friends — usual collaborators Emily Slaughter and Michael Freeland — and he was without distractions. "It was genuinely one of the best experiences of my life, like living in paradise" he said.
