The bear has replaced the wolf as indie rock's preferred animal, so it's appropriate that Bear in Heaven is one of the buzzier members of the genre, propelled in part by props bestowed upon it by — who else? — Ed Droste from Grizzly Bear. Droste's band is an okay place to start when trying to describe the moody experimental pop Bear in Heaven makes, but it's also worth noting the less-polished Hot Chip elements that show up in the Brooklyn outfit's electro-organic creations. BIH's sound lends itself to being remixed, which is why last year's Beast Rest Forth Mouth is being rereleased in September with a bonus disc of reinterpretations from notables like the Field, High Places, and Jesu's Justin K. Broadrick.
