Morst's Pick of the Week: Time-Sick Son Of A Grizzly Bear

Back in November, I posted a song from a Mother Hips show when they opened for Backyard Tire Fire at Schuba’s in Chicago. But there were two nights. That’s two shows. That’s two picks. Here comes another. What will it be? In the months between then and now, Mother Hips’ new album Pacific Dust has grown on me and is tied for my current favorite album with Ike Reilly’s Hard Luck Stories.

But this week’s pick is not from the most recent album, but the one before that. Kiss the Crystal Flake came out in 2007, and has some good ol’ California Soul all over it.

Time-Sick Son Of A Grizzly Bear is just the right amount of catchy. Even though it’s the state mascot, are there any Grizzlies left outside of zoos?
