Music break: Bear Grass

Something to listen to, today or whenever: "Wash Over Me" by Bear Grass.

The song is off the local group's new album, LEFT, which will be released August 10. Album blurbage:

LEFT is the sophomore album of Troy, NY based indie rock band Bear Grass. Originally from Fox Island, Washington, lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Katie Hammon, describes LEFT as a question of time and place. Having left her childhood home at age 17 to relocate to the right coast, Hammon has spent her adult life away from the people and places for which she holds great love and nostalgia. LEFT plays with the emotions of creating home while holding onto the past, recognizing that the people and places which once existed move along with time. ...
LEFT was created by Katie Hammon, bassist August Sagehorn, Tommy Krebs on vocals, keys and guitar, and drummer Ian White. The album was recorded and mixed by Hunter Davidsohn of Business District Recording in Johnson City, NY, and mastered by Josh Bonati of Bonati Mastering NYC.

Bear Grass has an album-release show lined up at the Post Contemporary - CAC Woodside in Troy August 10. Hunter Davidson will open. Admission includes a free copy of the album along with finger foods, and Rare Form will be there selling beer. Tickets are $20 and available online.

Five Kill Records
LEFT is being released by Five Kill Records, the new indie label that's a collaboration of handful of Albany/Troy collectives and labels: B3nson Recording Company, Swordpaw Collective, Collar City Records, The Rev Records, and Bee Side Cassettes.

(That's "kill" as in the Dutch word for stream/river.)

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
