It might be fun, we might not hit bottom. We might fly to the other side of this strange dimension. Will you let us do it? Will you join us?
Bear In Heaven: New Mixtape, Tour Starts Tomorrow

There’s a deep, magmatic archaeology beneath the feet of Bear In Heaven. The sounds that seeded the windswept field of Red Bloom of the Boom, that lit a torch in the dripping primordial cave of Beast Rest Forth Mouth, and that whisper you into an all-out shake as you spin I Love You, It’s Cool — those sounds are still here. In fact, they’re right here.

Today, Bear In Heaven released an exclusive mixtape on FADER, and, in a few songs, reveal their loves, old and new. The track list:

Cex – Enter Carter
Kyoka – Hadue
Factory Floor – Lying
Andrew Pekler – Misty Blue
Craig Leon – Donkeys
Alpha Wave Movement – Beacon 2
Oblio – Factory Of Reincarnation
Invisible Conga People – Cant Feel My Knees
Andrew Fitzpatrick – Coyote Prism
Bear In Heaven – Kiss Me Crazy (Certain Creatures Remix)
Diamond Age – Opening Credits
Bear In Heaven – Greece Sun
Harold Budd – Wanderer

Among the collection is a never-before-heard Bear In Heaven piece titled “Greece Sun” and a new remix of “Kiss Me Crazy” by Certain Creatures (a.k.a. Oliver Chapoy, a friend as old as the band itself). And, yeah, that’s Andrew Fitzpatrick from All Tiny Creatures.

Bear In Heaven hit the road again tomorrow, weaving down the eastern US to Moogfest and back up for a big hometown show in Brooklyn…right before hopping across the ocean to reinforce the sonic architecture of The National-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties in the UK. Hell yes. Dates below.
