The Black Bear Affiar
The Black Bear Affair - Glisten by the black bear affair
The Black Bear Affair - Breaking Wave by the black bear affair
The Black Bear Affair are a two man bedroom lo-fi pop band from Sarasota, FL. Their songs employ the tried and true method of proper fuzz and a catchy guitar line. "Glisten" is a slower number with a hook that reminds me of Pixies, though I can not exactly figure out why. "Breaking Wave" is a more straight up rock track, with a fuzzy lo-fi feel. I personally prefer "Breaking Wave", probably because the guitar line reminds me "Weird Fish" by Radiohead. These guys are definitely worth keeping an eye on.
