About Bear Hands
Bear Hands broke out in 2007 as a New York buzz band thanks to a strong debut EP Golden. But it’s taken three years for the group to wrap up recording their debut full-length — normally a death sentence for an indie rock band trying to survive the hype-then-kill cycle of music blogs.
In this case, the wait was worth it: Burning Bush Supper Club, which hits stores next week, is an 11 song psychedelic-funk monster that advances the quirky hooks and fist-pumping anthems of MGMT’s debut Oracular Spectacular. Which makes sense: frontman Dylan Rau was classmates at Wesleyan with MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, who picked Bear Hands as an opening act for a few gigs.
About Hesta Prynn
New York’s Hesta Prynn’s new music has a throwback feel- an intersection of glam and street born of the bowels of Manhattan. Formerly MC Hesta Prynn of the Columbia Records band Northern State, Prynn’s newest album will be produced by Sara Quin, of Canadian twin duo Tegan and Sara. Hesta has an army of talent around her, including Tim Harrington of Les Savy Fav and Eric Gardner of Gnarls Barkley. Chuck Brody and Jon Siebels add their genius, and the result is post-hipster punk-noir post-pop for the new decade.
