From the eclectic dance-pop sensibilities of Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, along with friend and collaborator Raf Daddy, comes a new musical endeavor, The 2 Bears. The duo’s second record is the four-song Curious Nature EP (out now on Southern Fried Records), an exhibition of sounds ranging from electro-tinged house jams to gospel-leaning ballads. The EP’s lead track, “Church,” gets a dub treatment here by Goddard himself. Explaining how his tweaked version of 2 Bears’ poignant tune came about, the producer says, “At the end of mixing ‘Church,’ we spent an hour just doing passes through the [mixing] desk with various outputs to outboard delays, echo boxes, and other magic boxes. From these takes I pieced together this dubbed-out version of ‘Church.'” We’re pretty happy he took the time to play with this one.
