Bear In Heaven – “Autumn (Matthew Dear Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Bear In Heaven released their new album, Time Is Over One Day Old, last month, and on that album was the thumping space-rock single “Autumn.” Now Matthew Dear has given the track a remix that focuses more on the “space” than the “rock.” The drums that anchored the song are subdued here, which allows “Autumn”… More »

Bear In Heaven – “Autumn” Video

Bear In Heaven recently put out their fourth album, Time Is Over One Day Old, and it opens with “Autumn,” a drum-driven track that’s scattered with yips and squalls.

The Brooklyn-based trio Bear In Heaven has long specialized in a sort of expansive, overwhelming, warmly psychedelic synth-rock, in music for closing your eyes and feeling the scope of the universe while maybe also dancing.

Helado Negro – “Relatives” (Feat. Bear In Heaven’s John Philpot) Video

Director Zircon Prince frames the ever-prolific aural experimentalist Roberto Carlos Lange (the man behind Helado Negro) next to this track’s guest singer John Philpot (the honeyed voice of Bear In Heaven), as the two trade verses in English and Spanish over Lange’s oscillating outre synth-dub stew. There’s a ship out at sea, too, so let… More »

The first video from Bear In Heaven’s new album I Love You, It’s Cool was the zoom-happy clip for “The Reflection Of You,” and they’ve now followed it up with something similarly dizzy. In the “Sinful Nature” video, we see CGI adaptations of characters from Pretty Women, all stretched-out and distended and thrown into a… More »

Bear In Heaven – “Sinful Nature”

Bear In Heaven’s new album I Love You, It’s Cool is coming next month, and we’ve already heard the disco-damaged first single “The Reflection Of You.” Album track “Sinful Nature” still has plenty of the band’s trademark synth-pulse, but it’s more dazed and scattered than its predecessor; listening to it feels like falling through psychedelic… More »
