- Who: Ian, Doug, & Kyle.
- What: Soulful loop-pop, like Germany Germany, Ray Lamontagne, Gotye.
- Where: Vancouver, BC + Facebook / Bandcamp / Amazon
- When: Live At The China Cloud is out now. A proper LP is slated for Spring.
- Why: Live albums are generally rubbish for for diehard fans of outdated bands. And then there are the odd discs that actually turn you on to a new band, making you forget you are listening to a live recording long enough that when you remember you are, you say “Woah, all that was live?” Meet Bear Mountain. They make big (and often instrumental) swirling indie rock jams with a soulful heart and a pop edge. They also cover Germany Germany. Twice. Radical.
Second best song on the album is “Two Step” but you have no excuse not to get the whole thing because its free at their Bandcamp.
