MUSIC: Bear on Bear

Ah, the debut EP. It's something that I hold near and dear. The hint of greatness, the excitement of creation, and the growing pains in between are all evident. Santa Cruz act Bear on Bear certainly embody this stereotype. Stylistically diverse but not wandering too far from their indie rock home base, the talent is certainly evident. A little ramshackle (see "Magpies), a little anthemic (see "Better than Nothing"), and a whole lot of promise.
