Giveaway: A Pair of Tickets to See Bear Hands Tonight at The Nightmare

Three years after making waves with its debut 2007 EP, Golden, New York's Bear Hands has finally gone ahead and released a proper full-length album called Burning 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 -- 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.

Want free passes to this show? OK: Just be the first person to email me, starting right now, with the words "Grin and Bear It" in the subject line. Good luck!
