Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Just came across SeaBear on a french mp3 blog and I can't stop listening to this guy from Iceland. The tracks for you to sample are from the debut ep Singing Arc (2005). The ep is home produced and from what I'm guessing just free from his website. The songs are a mix of everything ranging from Album Leaf- ish on Do You Still Like Scarcrows to an up-tempo modern day Nick Drake- ish on Singing Arc. From upbeat to Sunday morning music this 8 track ep covers the gambit. I wish I knew more about the band, but there are 8 tracks on the website so check that out and he also has a LiveJournal so check that out as well.

    Thanks Sindi, I don't really know much about Seabear, other than your sound is amazing, so I appreciate you letting me know where you can buy the cd. I always try to put up that info if I can get it. So I just posted a post with the info. Thanks!
