This take on Heathered Pearls’ Beach Shelter by The Bear & The Sea has got all the elements that you’ve come to love and know by the bear, but also an eerily familiar narrative that’s reminiscent of ’80s sci-fi movies. You know, that turning point in the movie where the protagonist regains their sense of self-worth and confidence, and they concoct the most ridiculously farfetched plan, that would absolutely not work in any real life situation, but, you know, because it’s the ’80s, it’s gonna work. And with some motivation from Heathered Pearls and The Bear, you know that’s a formula for success in any endeavor. Enjoy!
Watch out, girl; Dead Astronauts are honest. They tell you like it is. Things like you don’t yet realize the destructive nature of love, the fires spreading everywhere, and your bones have left you with no one to hold. Oh, and also, stars explode. Their music is basically an icy cold hug of wisdom best consumed as a vampire smothering aid.
This is DA’s freshman release on Nueva Forma; a reverent and true 80s inspired EP of eight lo-fi new wave tracks, four of which are Perturbator’s retrofuturistic synth remixes – reinventions, really – of the first four tracks. For instance, the original B-side track is a faux-haunting, melodramatic sort of dead-eyed sleepy jam. Pertubators’s remix has this sexy, swelling, cosmic void vibe. Two wild sides of the same righteous coin, if you ask us, so do yourself a solid and flip it. And just try not to notice Glenn Arthur’s morbid-galactic album artwork while you’re at it.

A SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS
The Bear And The Sea has just released a new Tidalkast episode which includes a new track from his forthcoming sophomore release out in late October. It also features a gorgeous remix by IG88, and goodness from Manfred, the solo project of Hayley Stewart, the other half of Dead Astronauts. In the meantime, sink your ears into this.
Autumn. The smell of warm campfire permeates the moist air as we make our way through the dimly lit trees. The sound of the rain begins to form a rhythm of it’s own as it gently beats against the leaves and branches, with each droplet forming an intricate pattern that our hearts cannot deny.
The Bear And The Sea just dropped a new track on Soundcloud called Like Zippers for Sky for inclusion on the upcoming Purr Tapes compilation Mist + Moss, out on September 7th. Lovely vocals provided by Hayley Stewart of Dead Astronauts! Enjoy.

Guillermo Scott Herren is nothing if not proven. It’s hard to think of a name that carries as much weight in both hip-hop and avant-rock circles as Prefuse 73, who in the past year alone has been asked to remix TV On The Radio, Pelican, BLK JKS, Cornelius, and producing the L.A. duo: “Voices Voices” e.p. on Manimal Records. Not to mention his collaborations with School of Seven Bells and Battles. These interactions have clearly helped to shape the evolving Herren’s sonic aesthetic, which has expanded to include Diamond Watch Wrists twisted visions of prog-rock & “machine funk” and Savath y Savalas global psychedelia.
