I came upon Little Bear from the usual paths (myspace, promotional email etc.) today and thought it was worth posting a couple of lines. Not much can be found about Nick Principe (the main/only man behind Little Bear) except that he recorded his debut EP Army of Trees (which you can download for free from here) in upstate New York before moving to Santa Cruz, California. His work is lo-fi rock with atmospheric, instrumental and folk influences. We’ve only had a few tracks on our hands, so we’ll be waiting for his debut LP before we can say more (although the start is promising enough to keep him on our to-look-out-for list).
