"best enjoyed with the lights off"
As it goes, there's a tendency to compare a band you hear to other more familiar ones. Bear Hands and their hook-filled indie rock LP, Burning Bush Supper Club, sound like an up-tempo version of Spoon meets Local Natives and supplanted by Luke Steele's (of Empire Of The Sun) powerful vocals.
The gradual integration of keyboard, samplers, and programmed drums into their sound has helped propel Bear Hands beyond being simply hometown heroes. Pitchfork put it best when reviewing Burning Bush Supper Club a few months ago, "this was the album that MGMT's Congratulations should have been, one that sharpens the lush, hedonistic surrealism of reverb-laden psych-rock into tightly focused anthems that are just anarchic enough as to be unpredictable."

Bear Hands - "Tablasaurus" (hope they've admitted to sampling the Catch Me If You Can theme music)
