Two Owls, Sixteen Moons




Bedroom Bear/Wind in Willows- split (HIV089)

Russia’s Bedroom Bear and Wind in Willows team up for a mysterious split displaying two unique, individual visions. Bedroom Bear gets things going with a folky, lo-fi slow burner, tape hiss like washes of waves on the beach. Wind in Willows follows suit with a miniature symphony of sparkling synths and skittering beats.
