Three years after making waves with its debut 2007 EP,Golden
, New York'sBear Hands
has finally gone ahead and released a proper full-length album calledBurning Bush Supper Club
. And the four-piece's new album is an interesting one, too, delving into funk, dream pop and relatively straightforward rock 'n' roll alike -- all awash in a lo-fi sheen -- for an intoxicating blend.
Give the entire new disc a taste over on Spin.com -- it's definitely worth it. And then go check out the band tonight, when it stops through for a gig at The Nightmare. It should be a good one, too, featuring two promising local acts as the openers -- Garland's theatrically quirky Kiwi Sisters and former Sydney Confirm frontman Sean Humphrey's new electro garage pop project, Sunn Talk.
After the jump, give Sunn Talk's "Uncovered Mysteries" a much-merited listen and download. Oh, and find out how to win a free pair of passes to tonight's performances, courtesy of Parade of Flesh, which is bringing this show to town.
