IT'S A BEAR! - THE ETERNAL REVERSE NECKBEARD INSIDE JOB EP [2013]

IT's a BEAR! comes out swinging with a new EP - Beiber age bros that play like pros, sounds like if Minor Threat was hanging around people that were ten years older then them (and there's some truth in that statement). 'Emo' like it was rite as spring, and goofy/ self actualized enough to say 'fuck you' and probably, maybe/probably not mean it.

...more like getting the enemy to think their guns are hydrangea, the enemy's a blood-relative, that sort of thing. Who knows. The accounts I've been reading have been incoherent, gistless. Experiments conducted. Things got out of hand. Let's just say things got out of control...

GIANT TRAVEL AVANT GARDE - APRES [2010]

In Apres, Giant Travel Avant Garde find their direction without losing their old ways. The 3-song movement boasts a new directness, stemming from two differences from their debut. Their rhythms are steadier without being too plain. They have cleaned up the sound without being too polished. The result is a more confident trio, with Chrisinger, Dangelo and Hebert each upping the ante on their respective talents, as well as their overall force. Apres climbs steadily, each song stronger than the one that came before it. “Apostle” paints a bleak future that carries through a grunge-painted “Nous” into the crashing denouement of “Lanterns.” Though they may not hold hope for the fate of society, Apres says intriguing things about where Giant Travel Avant Garde are headed.
