Jam of the Day – Bear Hands Entertains High Society for FNO 2011

Bear Hands is back and ready to party with their latest high-octane offering “High Society,” the second single off their debut LP Burning Bush Supper Club. In keeping with the song’s title, the band is performing tonight at Rockefeller Center as part of Fashion’s Night Out 2011, along with White Rabbits and Lissy Trullie (and DJ sets from DJ Keiichiro throughout the evening). Come mingle with fashion icons and whatnot (or at least hear some great live music). There’s even a tent in case it starts raining again!

For the “High Society” video, guitarist Ted Feldman, along with co-director Andrei Bowden-Schwartz, used four computers and 10,000 images of the band playing live to create the kaleidoscope effect of the amalgamated scenes, as Feldman explained to Mashable in a recent interview. Keep the hits coming, lads.

EV2BK Live Music – Bear Hands, Slam Donahue, and Emil & Friends

At the end of any great show, don’t you have that fantasy moment that the band you were grooving to all night will come out and play just one more song? Well last Friday, the audience at the Gibson Guitar Showroom in Washington, D.C. got just that. Following the Bear Hands set at the end of the show as the crowd was trickling out to the porch to enjoy their last drinks and cigarettes, Val Loper and Ted Feldman from Bear Hands, Slam Donahue, and Emil from Emil & Friends rocked out to Slam Donahue’s “It’s Scary.” The show was hosted by All Things Go and curated by Cantora Records.

Live Video – @BearHandsBand Performing NEW Song “Giants” at Cantora Records Official SXSW 2011 Showcase

In case you haven’t been able to see Bear Hands recently, they have started to play a new song live called “Giants.” This is probably my new favorite Bear Hands song, and ya’ll need to get ready for the dopeness when these guys record their next album.

This recording is from their set at the Cantora Records Official SXSW 2011 Showcase down at The Driskill Hotel in Austin, TX, where they shared the stage with Superhumanoids, Slam Donahue, Reptar, Secret Music, and Computer Magic. Take notes!

Featured Video – Bear Hands “Crime Pays”

Pitchfork debuted the new video for “Crime Pays” from Bear Hands today, featuring a special guest appearance by what appears to be Mike Tyson at the boxing match! Also, I really enjoy the ending. Take the camera and run little man!

EV2BK Live Music – Deli Magazine Showcase at Brooklyn Bowl

During CMJ week there were a ton of shows to check out and one we were certainly glad not to peep was the Deli Magazine Showcase featuring Bear Hands, Brahms, Oberhofer, and Keepaway at Brooklyn Bowl. It was a killer show and a highlight of the week. Here are a few songs from that night.

Jam of the Day – Move Over Moses: Bear Hands Release A New Burning Bush

Bear Hands // Photo by Betsy Blundell

Bear Hands drops their long-awaited and anticipated first LP Burning Bush Supper Club today, and we couldn’t be happier about how hard they’re making it rain. There are so many good tracks on this record that we hope you will listen to it streaming on Spin.com or order the album from Cantora Records. Definite standouts include the catchy-as-pink-eye opener “Crime Pays,” long time live favorite “Belongings,” and the track that feels like the heart and soul of the record, “Whicksey Boxing.” Plus, “Blood and Treasure” will rock your socks off!

Here’s the first single, “Crime Pays,” which will have a video soon, apparently.
