KEXP at CMJ 2013, Day 1: Bear Ceuse

Well, that was a sure way to wake up the neighborhood! Kicking off KEXP’s 2013 CMJ broadcast was New York’s own Bear Ceuse, a band whose pounding drums, searing guitars, and loud, belted vocals definitely woke up the group of caffeinated New Yorkers who gathered at Judson Memorial Church for their morning session. Their guitarist/vocalist Adam Horne showed up wearing a Guided By Voices t-shirt, which was pretty perfect since the band’s debut album Don Domestique, out now on Medical Records, calls to mind the ’90s heyday of indie rock. And the band treated us to a brand new, unreleased single “Zombies,” just in time for Halloween.

    I love this band! Great first album. Thanks to KEXP for bringing Bear Ceuse into focus. I’ve been a Cameron Matthews fan for awhile and thoroughly enjoy the latest of his musical endeavors. Worth the buy ladies and gents.
