Seattle-based alterna-indie quintet Minus The Bear are to release their third long-player proper on September 10, through Undergroove.
The follow-up to 2005's well-received Menos El Oso was recorded by former band member Matt Bayles in Seattle; Bayles' keyboard position has been filled by Alex Rose.
Having had the record on in the office a couple of times lately, DiS can report that it is good. A massive departure from previous material? Maybe... there's certainly a greater electronica edge to it than albums past.
