MP3 (and More!) of the Day #272: Bear Hands

Whenever I think of Bear Hands from New York, I think of their superb song ‘What a Drag’, with its thudding drums and tropical vibe. So I was really pleased to learn their debut album, ‘Burning Bush Supper Club’, was recently released on Cantora Records.

And I was even more pleased to be given the green light to give away a song from the new album, ‘Crime Pays’. They filmed a promo video for the song as well, so I thought, the more the merrier, right? The band’s guitarist Ted Feldman had this to say about the video:

Andrei Bowden Schwartz directed the ‘Crime Pays’ video from a concept that my filmmaker friend Sam Shainberg and I had birthed one day over Vietnamese sandwiches. Andrei was the Director of Photography for Bear Hands’ first music video, ‘What a Drag.’ He and I have a production company called Matchbook Pictures that made this video happen, with Dan Cerruti producing. We had a lot of help from both friends and strangers. It took four days to shoot, all around New York City, where Sam, Andrei, Dan, Dorian and I grew up throwing molotov cocktails into windows and picking up prostitutes.

You can listen and download the song and watch the video below.
