Firing up the Hotline on this Monday morning: As we all know, there’s not much to do when stuck in airports. So when Brooklyn space-aged synth-kids Bear in Heaven (as previously noted, a Hotline fave) were trapped in Madrid en route to London as a result of that angry mountain in Iceland, they got creative.
The boys placed a video camera on a baggage claim belt and set it to their track “Dust Cloud” in a serendipitous marriage of sight and sound. The result is the best – and trippiest -- piece of airport video footage since Tom Hanks starred in the Terminal.
Peep the Bear in Heaven tour dates, which include a few New England jams but nothing within the I-495 belt, after the video jump, and we still urge you to buy last year’s album “Beast Rest Forth Mouth.” It’s ace.
