I also feel like there are echoes of Philip Glass, David Tudor, and other 60s/70s synth and/or minimalist music.

i can see as how there might be echoes of minimalist musics (i dunno, i don't hear any philip glass), but not so much that i'm inclined to think of bear in heaven as distinctly retro in that regard. i mean, CAD's point feels intuitively correct to me, there's an echo here that's more pronounced than the beach boys vibe anco/panda sometimes give off, but i can't quite pin it down. yes still strike me as the closest reference point - both 70s & 80s incarnations of the band, both "roundabout" and "owner of a lonely heart".

So new one forthcominghttp://bearinheaven.com/?page_id=6
They're doing this thing where they're playing a single runthrough of the album "stretched" over like three months, which I think is a little corny, but w/e love these guys anyway and looking forward to the record

i can't stand the upside-down beat on that song. don't know what they were thinking, except for trying to be clever.

these guys were fun live. singer guy has an interesting case of frontman syndrome but on further review i'll allow it. he's also secretly old which makes his weird voice even weirder.

yeah that guy has actually been kicking around brooklyn making music for something like 15+ years IIRC
