Minus the Bear
"Is it possible to put this night to tune?” The question is
posed in Minus the Bear’s song, “Pachuca Sunrise,” and, based on their mastery
of poetic prog-rock, the answer is yes. The Seattle indie group’s expansive
sound is encapsulated in unique time signatures, two-handed guitar tapping and
playful lyrics from singer Jake Snider.
The math-rock quintet will be
performing MTB staples along with songs from the May 2010 album OMNI, produced by Joe Chiccarelli (the
Shins, My Morning Jacket). The OMNI
songs further explore their unique style with Dave Knudson’s new experiments on
baritone guitar and keyboardist Alex Rose’s vintage Omnichord synthesizer, on
which he adds multiple layers and electronic tinges to drummer Erin Tate’s and
bassist Cory Murchy’s pounding rhythms.
