Minus the Bear at Sasquatch 2010 (more by Chris Graham)
Minus the Bear

As discussed, math-emo vets Minus the Bear are releasing Acoustics II this year, the sequel to 2008's Acoustics EP, which gave us acoustic versions of older MTB favorites and one new one. The new album, among other things, gives us an acoustic version one of their most classic songs/live staple, "Absinthe Party at the Fly Honey Warehouse." Check out the newly arranged version of the track, which makes its premiere in this post, below.

Minus the Bear's previously discussed tour brings them to NYC on October 26 at Best Buy Theater for a show with INVSN and Slow Bird. Tickets for that show are still available.

Song stream below...

How they managed to butcher their own song is a testament to how awful this band has become

It appears to me that the old man is the guy's father. The old man also seems to be maybe changing his will to not include his son anymore? Also, at the very end the old man is hunched over the guy checking on him (and maybe even mourning?) while the girl stands back.

I think that OMNI was a mature record that reached out to a more diverse crowd. this is just flat out not as good. it doesnt even have as much pop appeal as omni, so what does it really have? simplicity?
