Download: Bear in Heaven -- "Bag of Bags"
Download: Bear in Heaven--"Werewolf" (single edit)
The songs above are from Bear in Heaven's soon to be released LP, Red Bloom of the Boom. The members of the band have cut their teeth with an impressive array of musicians including, but not limited to: Rhys Chatham, Jonathan Kane, Savath and Savalas, Panthers and Paul Duncan. Red Bloom of the Boom makes a compelling case for the band's compositional talents as well as their technical proficiency. Long, spacious, and dark, the seven songs of the LP work best when listened to in one sitting. Though the tracks offered above are a testament to the quality of individual songs on the album, Bear in Heaven succeeds in creating a cohesive work that is somehow more than the sum of its parts. We hope that you enjoy the songs here, and if you do, be sure to pick up the whole record from your local record store or the fine people at Hometapes.
