Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Giant Bear

Giant Bear

2007-09-24

Hailing from Tennessee, the state’s country influence is definitely heard the self-title debut album from Giant Bear. The lead singer’s attempts to emulate Bruce Springsteen are capable if not always engaging. The music itself is pleasing though out, with slide guitarist Luther Dickinson from the North Mississippi Allstars and saxophone player Scott Gerardy of Dirtfoot featuring on a selection of tracks. The cellist, the only female in the 5 piece band, brings the most to the table. The cello adds an excellent layered quality to the album and her vocals shine through on any track. The best selections are #6 Trent Reznor’s “Head Like a Hole”, #9 “Devil on the Wall”, and #12 “Ida No!”. Ben Cook, WYCE Intern
