Bear Mountain (who take their name from Jack Kerouac’s 1958 novel The Dharma Bums). Their rhythmic, vocally driven sound draws heavily upon a shared appreciation of house music and always keeps an ear to the dance floor. They’ve also come to be known for their wild atypical performances, seeing them live is a unique, whirlwind experience and an important part of the band’s life. Over the course of past two years, Bear Mountain has played shows across North America, opening for acts like Bloc Party, Hot Chip, and Cut Copy, as well as performing at festivals such as The Governor’s Ball, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Sasquatch. “Give It Up,” is the new single from Bear Mountain’s upcoming LP Badu (just announced the record today!) is set to drop September 9th via Last Gang Records (DFA1979, Ryan Hemsworth, Chromeo, etc).
