Let's have some cello-soaked melancholic americana for Friday, shall we? You know we're suckers for a bit of string action.
I've been meaning to post this lot up since last year and shame on me for not doing so earlier.
Giant Bear seem to be a collective of musicians and lost souls who make songs that manage to be both boot stomping and whimsical at the same time. It's like No River City meets Drive By Truckers by way of Nickel Creek. On the set of Earl. All in all, a rollicking good time.
Listen: Giant Bear - Devil on the Wall
Listen: Giant Bear - Nashville
Plenty more songs on the official site.
