I can not stop listening to the new Minus the Bear album, Planet of Ice. The disc isn't being released until Aug 21, but I've been lucky enough to procure an advance copy (read: I have the internet) and I am definitely planning on purchasing it when available. Stereogum has a track for download, and while it's not my favorite song from the album, it's still great. The songs remind me quite a bit of two other medium-intensity rock bands that I am very fond of, Karate and Braid. I-like-it-a-lot.
