New Music - Bear Hands

Brooklyn's Bear Hands have been kicking around for a little while now, gradually building up a reputation as being a rock band that can deliver. A quick listen to the band's tracks makes it clear that that ain't no lie. They manage to exude a certain vibe that we here at HAD happen to love, which is to say: pure, unadulterated rock and roll.

Now news has come over the wire that the band are in the process of recording their first full length (a follow up to the four track Golden EP), and are taking a couple of nights off to deliver a few shows to the hapless souls of New York City. Exciting, yes?

So, if you dig the tune below, and find yourself desiring to be on the upward slope of the "what's hot" curve, this might just be your chance. The band will be at Cake Shop on Friday night September 25th, and at Braur Falls in Brooklyn the following evening, the 26th. While we've never seen the band live, we're certainly liking what we hear on record. And, if our sources are to be believed, the live show is kinda like that - but better. In other words, well worth your time.
