The Bear People – Song For Baby Bear

The emergence of the Dying Seconds was good enough news but I’ve been listening to Waterfordian the Bear People (Dave Grimes, thanks CB) all morning and I’m starting to believe there could be something of a new electronica movement happening here. That’d be nice because I had high hopes for the genre, which provided so many interesting albums in the early part of the century. Detailed information on the Bear People is distinctly thin on the ground save for the fact that Dave likes putting mixtapes together that lean towards the shoegaze end of things (wahay!). M83 tends to be an influence (he hates them) especially on the celestial breaching drone of ‘Guitar Static’, elsewhere a more clearly defined sequence of ideas emerges like on the mixed up vocabulary (and at times beats) of ‘Drunk Velvetsy Noodle’. ‘Song For Baby Bear’ shades it though amid the rumour that the Tour De France is on the lookout for a new anthem.
