The Belle Jar- Union Station
Mar 5, 2014
From the Bears of Blue River MySpace: “the bears of blue river are friends with day jobs who began gathering in the evenings to make silly noises in a dilapidated old apartment with wooden floors. soon they found themselves playing folk diddies dressed up with some bop about them. their roots define them as hoosiers but currently they are split between chicago, indianapolis, and muncie."
Not to be confused with the 1984 book by Charles Major of the same name, The Bears Of Blue River will blindside even the most readied listeners with the sheer joy and fervor of The Killer Bee Scare. The EP may only house five songs, but each lends itself to the next, bearing (pun intended) repeated plays over and over again. The charm of “Crayola” recalls Paul Simon’s reassuring voice and the backing vocals of She & Him’s female half, complete with lush-yet-rigid instrumentation reminiscent of Fleet Foxes.
