An album I’ve been spending a lot of time with recently – and you should too – is the latest from Minus The Bear. They’ve returned with their best album yet – Omni – on Dangerbird Records. The Seattle prog-popsters have focused their sound even more on their fourth album, exchanging some of their quirkier math-rock leanings for some soulful, funky & jazzy grooves. They still know how to spazz out a bit, however the band’s songwriting has definitely take a nice twist with an emphasis on greater melodies and more “efficient” playing. That sounds kind of sterile, I know. But MTB have definitely moved to an exciting new musical space, without losing too much of their math-prog roots. Very nice progress.
