Homespun: Cold Bear Scout, Let's Meet the Sun and the Moon EP

In this week's paper, Christian Schaeffer reviews Cold Bear Scout's Let's Meet the Sun and the Moon EP. He had this to say:

[The EP] is a brief but rewarding glimpse into his style of off-kilter folk rock. There's a rootsy, ramshackle quality to many of Moon's songs, but Cold Bear Scout's sound is shot through with enough static, feedback and twinkly percussion to build a bridge between freak folk and mainstream indie. "From Time to Time" initially coasts on the metallic plunks of a kalimba, but it's not long before some ragged electric guitar and the deep beat of a floor tom steer the song toward a decidedly more rocking conclusion. This progression from bucolic whimsy to sonic spelunking guides much of the EP.
