LITTLE BEAR “Live” (Third Ham Records)



Two dudes. Breathy vocals. Two guitars. Finger-picky. Twenty-two guitar pedals. Zero riffs. Zero earworms. Hollow? Sparse? Pretty? Prozaic? Sounds a whole helluva lot like Horn-of-Plenty era Grizzly Bear most times; others, the occasional Grateful Dead feeling. Not bad. Not good. Just is.

    1. i'd really like to know why a live performance was cut to tape instead their studio stuff, which is remarkably more engaging. things that make me go 'hmmm'?
