Stream New Bear In Heaven Album

Back in January, we talked about Brooklyn psych-rock group Bear In Heaven‘s new album I Love You, It’s Cool, due out April 3rd via Hometapes; we also brought you a stream of the album’s second track, “The Reflection Of You.” The album has been streaming on the band’s website since December 2011, but at a tiny fraction of their normal speed; when we reported in January, the stream had reached the album’s third song, and it is now playing the ninth and penultimate track, presumably intending to wrap up the stream by the April 3rd release date. Unfortunately, it still sounds like ambient buzzing on the website, and if you’d like to try it out at full speed, you can head over to NPR, where you can listen to the entire album without any gimmicks. Most of it is decidedly catchy, feel-good, synth-backed with mellow vocals, not unlike the band’s earlier releases. Click here to listen to the album via NPR.

Here’s the music video for “The Reflection Of You”:
