Stream: “Exactly Where I Was”
I sent Jesse from Bear Cub an email a few weeks ago to see if he wanted to submit a song for the 12 days of Christmas promotion. He emailed me back and asked if we wanted a cover or an original and I told him that either would be awesome. I assumed what we would get back was something acoustic and simple. Naturally, I was wrong. Bear Cub laid down a pretty stellar track and it’s definitely one of my favorites that we’re presenting this season. It covers a lot of ground in just under three minutes.
Before the end of the year, the band will be playing a couple shows in Pittsburgh before entering the studio in 2011 to record their third official release (after releasing a full-length and a follow-up EP in 2010). The handful of demos I heard last night sounded pretty phenomenal.
If you’re not familiar with Bear Cub, it’s time to play catch up before you sleep on them any longer and they have like 6 albums of material released. The first, self-titled album will assuredly make it to our top albums of 2010 lists. If you’re a fan of bands like Limbeck, The Format or fun., this band is right up your alley. It’s folk music with exceptional pop sensibility.
