I downloaded BBSC because I really enjoyed the Bear Hands - High Society EP which had several remix versions of tracks on this album plus "High Society". What impresses me with this very new and young band is how mature their sound seems with their very first LP. And despite how eclectic the LP is, and it truly runs the gambit from Post Punk to Psychedelia, all the songs are surprisingly deep musically but still very easy to listen to. Just compare "Tablasaurus" with "Blood and Treasure", I would bet many people listening for the first time wouldn't even guess it was the same band.

Dylan Rau the lead singer has a certain Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction) quality to his voice but the falsetto which can be extremely annoying in some singers never sounds whiny or forced here. "Crime Pays" is a perfect example of his great change in pitch from within the same song. "Camel Convention" sounds like a completely different person.

Anyway if you are looking for a newer breakout band on the Indie scene and like your albums on the eclectic side, then look no further.

Brooklyn-based indie rock outfit Bear Hands may seem like just another "dime a dozen" indie band and in many ways they fit the criteria: nasally falsetto? Check. Tambourine? Check. Quirky lyrics? Check. Band name with the word "bear" in it? Check. Yet Burning Bush Supper Club (2010, Cantora Records), the band's first full-length album, is still full of surprises. The quartet might be most easily compared to MGMT (interesting considering lead singer Dylan Rau was classmates with MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser at Wesleyan University), only a little sloppier and a lot less trippy. Burning Bush is an eclectic mix of glittery psychedelic keyboards, post-punk guitars, plucky synthetic riffs, and a whole lot of reverb.

At the first belting of "everyone knows that crime pays and everybody does it" in the album's opening track "Crime Pays," Rau's whiney falsetto sounds a lot like Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos and is even reminiscent of Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction's. Then, about a minute in, he jumps down an octave. He switches between the two for the rest of the song and sometimes we hear both in harmony with each other. Rau does an impressive job of keeping listeners amused throughout Burning Bush, showcasing a range of vocal textures- from the uber-falsetto in "Crime Pays" to the screechy staccato in "What A Drag" to the mellow, wispy vocals overdubbed with falsetto in "Camel Convention." Much like MGMT, Bear Hands is a fan of vocal reverb--excessively at times, though it features more prominently in some songs than in others.

Another thing that keeps Burning Bush so fresh and engaging is its array of upbeat percussive textures.

I bought this album because it sounded interesting and at the time it was $3.99. The more I listen to it the more I love it. Over time it has become one of my favorite albums. It kind of reminds me of MGMT, but still has its own sound. Definitely worth the money!

You can listen to it all the way through without having to turn a song, every song is a good jam. Great album.
