Bear In Heaven
I Love You, It’s Cool - DEAD OCEANS/HOMETAPES
FILTER Grade: 88%

Another outstanding entry from the electro-enclave, Brooklyn-based Bear in Heaven’s I Love You, It’s Cool is a slick ride—harder to brush off than the “aw, shucks” title suggests. A tug towards the dancefloor, “The Reflection of You” pairs a towering wall of percussion with ’80s-influenced synths, crashing like waves against the shore. What are we to make of the album’s oversized ambitions? “Freak out!” leadman Jon Philpot demands on “World of Freakout.” Don’t mind if I do.
