Single Serving: Bear Hands – Burning Bush Supper Club

I love a song that grows on me with repeated listens, but that isn’t to say I can’t appreciate a more “direct” pop song that requires little or no investment.  In fact, there is a certain immediate satisfaction from hearing a song once and feeling floored by it.  For example, I knew I loved “Living in America” by DOM the first time I heard it, and I feel the same way about “Crime Pays” by Bear Hands.  “Crime Pays” is the first single off of their forthcoming full length Burning Bush Supper Club which features the similarly rewarding cut “What a Drag.”  This will definitely be an album to check out when it is released.  Speaking of which, Burning Bush Supper Club will be released on November 2, but 3 tracks from the album can be streamed now at Bear Hands’ bandcamp page.  And if you like what you hear (and live in the Bay Area) – why not stop by the Rickshaw Stop on November 18, 2010 to catch ’em live.

    Wow! great post! I checked out their site and I liked everything I heard. Do you know where they are from? One of the videos on their MySpace page looks like it was shot in my hometown Pittsburgh PA.

    Can’t wait to pick up their album!

  • Hey Brian! Thanks for the comment — it’s good to hear from you. Anyways, I know they are living in New York, but that a few of the members of the band met at college in Connecticut. Anyways – I’m with you, definitely excited to get this album.

    Hi everyone!
    It seems I’ve fallen in love with that song as quick as you two guys. Could be a pretty good album if they carry on with that quality.
