Love for I Love You, It’s Cool

“For better or worse, I Love You begins and ends with its irrepressible and impossible to ignore lead single, “Reflection of You.” It’s Bear in Heaven’s best song to date, a ever-climbing sing-along with the most ass-shaking beat the band have thrown down yet.” Prefix

“Yet the ultimate kiss-off is delivered in Philpot’s deceptively sinister intonation, “I know what it is/It’s a phase/You just don’t know.” The power lies in the pregnant pause between “phase” and “you,” imbuing the line with devastation and regret. It’s subtle moments like these that illustrate just how far Bear in Heaven have progressed as songwriters, and I Love You, It’s Cool is an album rife with them.” Under the Radar

We are devastated to report that Phosphorescent’s van was stolen last night following their fantastic show on Pier 54 in New York City. You can read the following message below detailing the incident. Please help out if you can. Good vibes are needed right now.

Last night, after an amazing show at Pier 54 in New York City, Phosphorescent’s rental van -along with all of their equipment – was stolen from outside a residence in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Last night’s show was the first night of their scheduled six-weeks US Tour. Among the stolen items was Matthew Houck’s custom, irreplaceable 1955 Gibson ES-125 guitar, vintage amplifiers, and a vintage pedal steel with losses totaling around $40,000. If anyone has ANY information or leads on what might have happened, or if you see any of this gear in pawn shops, on Craigslist, etc, please call the NY Police Department, Vector Management, or anyone you think might be able to help recover this gear. The van rental company is insured – they are covered for their van and are therefore not greatly concerned with recovering it. Phosphorescent DOES care though, greatly, about recovering any of this gear possible, and about right now figuring out how to rally up and make this US Tour happen. Anything anyone can do to help would be simply amazing. We have set up a Paypal account for anyone wishing to donate funds to help replace gear – anything helps. We will be sending updates about the upcoming tour dates ASAP. Thanks in advance for any goodwill and assistance and thank you for your support over the years.

Paypal donations can be sent to:
