Belgian Couple Attacked By A Bear, but he just wanted to sing songs: Black Bear

Who? Black Bear

What? Synthesizer indie lo-fi

Sounds like? Casiotone For The Painfully alone

Let’s start with a game: name as many bands with the word bear in it as you can. I’ll start: Grizzly Bear, Grumpy Bear, Bearsuit, Himalayan Bear, Panda Bear, Quiet Bears, Volcano The Bear and Seabear. And i’m probably forgetting some. Anyway, lame introduction to today’s band: Black Bear.

Don’t know where i found out about this guy, but it was a very good find, especially for a lo-fi freak as i am (sometimes). With a quite distinctive voice and cool synth melodies and beats. He sounds like a happier version of Casiotone For The Painfully Alone at times, although he also is just a tiny bit of Sunset Rubdown.

But, as i’ve said already many times before: music tells more than all the rubbish i’m typing trying to describe it.

Black Bear – Flicker Wings

Black Bear –  I Believe in Immediacy

You should all go to Baskerville Records and buy the album. And spam the guy on his MySpace to ask when there will be a second album. (his best song by the way is “Black Bear” which can be listened to on his myspace, which is the reason why i’m not posting it here)

    Ik heb Casiotone For The Painfully Alone altijd al een dijk van een groepsnaam gevonden…🙂
