Black Bear - The Cinnamon Phase (2006)

This is Black Bear's first and only release at the moment. The music he makes is a geeky sort of amalgam of conventional indie electronic and what people are calling lo-fi indie these days. What stands out to me most about his music is his lyrics. At times they are quirky and sing-songy. At times they are overly-romantic (relationships, blech). At times they are conceptual and a bit less superficial. The lyric styles vary from song to song, which can either be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your mind for music. I think it's a pretty cool album, and is definitely worth checking out.

The black bear has it figured out and gets what he deserves.
And the fur that he is wearing is the fur that he prefers.
