Brooklyn-based experimental rock band, Bear In Heaven released their second album, Beast Rest Forth Mouth in 2009, garnering mostly positive critical reception including being awarded the honor of "Best New Music" by Pitchfork.

Utilizing electronically distorted instruments and a few instances of tribal drum beats, it is hard to classify Beast Rest Forth Mouth into an exact genre. It's certainly psychedelic enough, incorporating elements of Kraut rock, making for a fairly unique, and very fresh sounding record. Standout tracks include "Beast In Peace", "Wholehearted Mess", and "You Do You".

The LP is pressed on an equal number of translucent red and blue colored vinyl. It has a very warm, inviting sound to it and should not be missed if you're a fan of the band.

The red vinyl edition is packaged in a blue cover, while the blue vinyl edition is packaged in a red cover. Both versions feature the same artwork. Lyrics and credits are displayed on a large newspaper foldout.

  1. all those covers look awesome!
    also i have heard a little bit of their music before and i liked it, but not my thing

  2. I love the way the vinyl looks

  3. I'm really glad that I found this blog. I really enjoy Indie music because it portrays a different aspect of music, and strays from the melancholy justin beiber crap now-a-days.

  4. i love what we're able to do with vinyl these days, makes me happy when i see that people are still pickign them up

  5. Looks great man. I love indie music. Too many people sell out now and just produce crap.

  6. Definitely going to keep checking for some new tunes :)

  7. Indie music is the best music - apart from classical, of course :)

  8. Wow i like these colored vinyls alot :) great vinyl too

  9. Love this album. Especially the artwork. Most artists today just wing it... Not these guys.

  11. Don't really like them but I will say the vinyl is great. I love colored vinyl and the whole album art is admittedly great.
