Bear Cat are one of the most joyful, strange, funny and charming bands of the new folk movement. In 2009 the band recorded an entire album about pandas. The album, titled Xiong Mao, was warmly received and the Denver Post music blog Reverb called it "the best indie pop album of the year". Now with an array of new, non-panda related material under their belt, their songs are alternately hilarious, and heartbreaking, calling to mind the offbeat attitude of Jonathan Richman, the deadpan humour of Flight of The Conchords and the narrative leanings of The Magnetic Fields. With the choir-voiced Josie playing concert xylophone and rough-hewn baritone Daniel switching between an array of ukuleles, Bear Cat will have you spellbound and singing along.

Recorded at home and mixed by Djeisan Suskov (Cool Rainbows, Artisan Guns, Dear Times Waste).
