Andrew Belle: “Sister” (Hushed)

with No Comments

Andrew Belle’s Black Bear Hushed EP features stripped down re-recordings of tracks from his Black Bear album and considering that it’s the closest thing I have to seeing him perform live again, I’ll happily take it. When I saw him perform at Highline Ballroom, his songs were stripped down from what they sound like on record and it made the show a lot more intimate. And even though remixes aren’t my favorite thing, the hushed versions of these Black Bear tracks are an exception. They sound so ethereal that I can almost pretend I’m back in the darkness of Highline, listening to Belle and co. performing.

Andrew, come back to New York already.
