Earlier tonight we attended what was essentially a live listening party for Bear Hands’ new single “What a Drag” at the Cantora Records studios in Brooklyn. “What A Drag” will be released in the U.S. by Cantora on February 16th, and will feature “Can’t Stick Em” as the b-side, available as a limited edition white 7″ vinyl and digitally via iTunes and the like. Bear Hands have been working on a new LP for a while now, and from what we hear it’s pretty much finished at this point, so this single release will serve as an entree to the LP at some point later this year (fingers crossed).
In any case, Bear Hands played a nice little six song set in a room built up with paper flowers and huge hanging lamps, ending with this nice rendition of the soon-to-be-major “What a Drag.” Have a listen! And if you want to download the tracks or buy the 7″, check out the newly redesigned Bear Hands website.
