now playing: bear hands take on texas

A bombastic post-punk leaning outfit from Brooklyn, Bear Hands have spent the last several years with their hands carefully cradled around all the promise in the world. Weary to release too much too soon, the band have sculpted that potential to perfection, whittling off a series of slimmed down releases (singles, EPs, etc) like tasty delicatessens for savory consumption. This of course has made the live arena the best place to scope more robust sonic experiences, which is the beauty of our latest concert release.

Filmed when the band graced the stage at our 2010 SXSW Day Party, this performance from Bear Hands validates exactly why we've been keen on these boys for some time now. Here, the band saunter through a tight and taught set of new cuts, setting rugged guitar riffs, bottom dwelling bass lines, cycloning percussive rhythms, and Dylan Rau's husky vocals adrift in the heavy, hot, and humid Texas afternoon. It's a potent performance, and provides plenty of reasons to keep track of this Brooklyn band over the next few months. The other reason? Their long awaited debut album will finally be released this Fall via our friends at Cantora Records. - David Pitz
