We Built a Fire - Morr Music
FILTER Grade: 84%

If Iron & Wine, Sufjan Stevens and Wilco had a sordid love-child, you’d have Seabear’s sophomore album, We Built a Fire. The melodic virtuosity is definitely a welcome change to the drab tunes haunting the indie scene today. Although the lyrics are slightly repetitive, the hypnotic rhythms more than make up for it, transporting the listener to a world void of the 9-to-5 mundane.
