TRACK REVIEW: Long Beard “Porch”



Sleepwalker is the debut album from New Brunswick singer-songwriter Leslie Bear, except we’re calling her Long Beard, despite no evidence of said beard. It’s an album four years in the making, produced by Chris Daly, and joined by Devin Silvers and Tom Christie on bass, and Stefan Koekemoer on drums. On the single “Porch”, Bear’s vocals crawl delicately like a spider across a web spun by the guitar lines. The song paints an aural portrait of the most beautiful time of the 24 hours we spend circling ’round the sun, when the light is dim enough to see fireflies, but not too dark that you’ve lost your lover’s features.

Sleepwalker is out via Team Love Records October 23. Listen to “Porch” below.
