Somehow Seabear’s new album almost slipped by me. I mean, it’s not out yet, but I still had no idea it was even on the horizon. I really loved their last record and from the looks of “Lion Face Boy,” this one should be about as good.
MP3: Seabear – Lion Face Boy
If you scratch the surface, it’s still the same old Seabear underneath, but I think they’ve been enjoying a lot of Andrew Bird since we last spoke to them. “Lion Face Boy” is a lot slower and more delicate than the songs off their debut. Plus that plucked violin just screams “I am a fan of Andrew Bird.” Of course, I’ve been known to scream the very same thing from time to time, so it’s probably best that they put that to work.
