Bear Hands, the Ecstatics

PETE COTTELL
9 pm., Thursday April 03 | $10 advance, $12 day of show.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[ELECTRO-POP] With its shuffling percussion, scratchy guitars and a Brooklyn area code, the blog-house ghetto looked like the end of the line for Bear Hands. Putting Jake Aron (Grizzly Bear, Yeasayer) at the helm of this year’s Distraction was a maximalist approach—heavy on layered yowling and buzzing synths—designed to elevate the group beyond its early post-punk tendencies and into the electro-pop echelon of Merriweather Post Pavilion or whatever you’d call Reflektor. Spiky guitars and disco swagger remain, but the arena-sized sounds of Distraction have ambitions that are above and beyond an indie-club dance floor.
