AlmostAGhost’s Top Albums Of 2012: #7. Bear (The Ghost) – What Was All This For?

if you miss my interpretations

I honestly know almost nothing about Bear (The Ghost). I happened on their album at some point though, and couldn’t get it out of my head. It kept climbing up my list, as I liked it more with every listen.

Their warm sound led to numerous plays–no required constant plays–as it fits all sorts of situations: both being played loud and soft, as background music or being trapped with it on a drive, during moments of contemplation or dancing around.

Since these are just 5 songs, all fairly lengthy, I could only share one mp3 here due to WordPress’ file size limits. And I would ask everyone to hear it all instead of just a song. Bear (The Ghost) also does not appear to be on Spotify or anything like that. However, you can listen to their album on their website here:


And I absolutely encourage everyone to do so. Bear (The Ghost) is my favorite new band that I found in 2012.

AlmostAGhost’s Top Albums Of 2012: #30. Divine Fits – A Thing Called Divine Fits

A Thing Called Divine Fits

living nostalgia like ice cream

Divine Fits is a “supergroup” of sorts, a phenomenally cool rock band made primarily of Britt Daniel (the main guy from Spoon, and most of the songs here sound like Spoon tracks) and Dan Boechner (of Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs).
