Indefinite Hiatus

I am saddened to say that I will have to put my blog on an indefinite hiatus due to the fact that I currently have more than I can handle on my plate. I want to thank everyone that has ever visited this blog. I hope I have pleasured your eardrums.

You may continue to follow me on Twitter, where I will still post song recommendations and links to any other cool music related news/songs/etc. I will also continue to be a guest-blogger on Pretty Much Amazing! The Music Blog.

Minus the Bear - Part 2

Between warm sake
And street light caught in falling snow

Minus the Bear formed in 2001 in Seattle, Washington. After releasing an EP and touring they entered the studio to record their debut LP--Highly Refined Pirates. One of the most interesting aspects of this band is their song titles. Ranging from "Just Kickin' It Like a Wild Donkey" to "You Kill Bugs Good, Man," you'd think they're just one big joke. I assure you that, musically, they're not and can, in fact, be quite complex.

"Part 2," from their third LP, Planet of Ice, does not actually have a Part 1 to it as far as I know. Just in case you were wondering. It's a pretty mellow and somewhat atmospheric song. I love the mix of both acoustic and electric guitar.

Favourite Part: About 2.5 minutes in, the music gets a little aggressive and the song reaches it's climactic point. I particularly like the lead guitar riff during this section.
