Back in May, L Magazine told us to listen to Brooklyn's Bear Hands. Well, it took me a while, but now I'm listening. In fact, I I've been listening to their 4-song (two of which are streaming on MySpace) EP a lot lately.
Why Bear Hands now? Partly because a friend (thx Greg) sent me the "Golden" EP (which is actually not out until November 13th), and partly because I noticed a recommendation by Oh My Rockness, and furthermore because of all the shows Bear Hands have been playing lately, and will be playing in the future - one of which is tonight (Sept 7) at Union Hall in Brooklyn with Aloha (who, by the way, played the "NYU Mystery Concert" last night with Beirut and Ted Leo), and three of which are part of an upcoming Pianos residency. Check their MySpace for more details, or see below for exact dates too....
