This weekend I’m heading to Kansas City for the first time to catch Middle of the Map Fest and couldn’t be more excited. Aside from seeing great acts like Grizzly Bear and Iceage, I’m really stoked to see young outfit Cowboy Indian Bear for the first time. You might remember them from a track I highlighted in January, if not then it’s time to familiarize yourself. I’ve been spinning their debut LP all morning long and it’s a solid gem, with a lot of texture, depth, and melodies. They’re quickly becoming one of my favorite new bands and have a haunting eeriness to their sound similar to The Antlers. Check out the live video below for new track “The Hunter and the Hunted”. More to come from this band very soon.
