Badu Calls from the Summit of Bear Mountain

bear_mountain_-_baduVancouver’s Bear Mountain has released a very impressive album entitled Badu, one of those rare discs that keeps one engaged through its entire duration with solid writing and a variety of flavours including electropop, lounge, jazz, soul, dance, and funk. A reference point might be Britain’s Rudimental. We were struck especially with the professionalism on the production side. Badu sounds very slick with tightly packed sound bytes that move along at a nice snappy pace. This is the band’s sophomore LP, the first being 2013’s XO. We embed the MVs for two tracks from Badu below: the instrumental dance-lounge opener and album’s title-track as well as electropop charmer “Hopeful”. These should give you a taste of this very fine album.  iTunes
