Jam of the Day | The Bear – I Want

Courtesy of Single Lock Records

There isn’t much I can say about this song, this band, and this video that the song, band, and video don’t say for themselves: The Bear are a modern soul-pop band out of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and they’ve put every piece of the history of the Shoals and their own unique sounds into this pitch-perfect slowburner soul-guitar love song. It’s simple and aching and absolutely full-bore vocal-wail gorgeous.

 The Bear released Overseas Than Under earlier this year on Single Lock Records — the project of Alabama Shakes keyboard player Ben Tanner and John Paul White of the Civil Wars — and they’re on and off the road right now, so see if they’re coming to your town and check this gloriousness live.
