On July 10, 2013, Minus the Bear announced that they would release Acoustics II, a ten-track LP with eight acoustic versions of old songs and two new tracks. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the They Make Beer Commercials Like This EP, the band played two small shows in the early part of 2014 on the west coast of the US. That summer, the band announced a new full-length compilation album entitled Lost Loves

Exclusive Prime pricing.

Minus The Bear, now 13 years into their career, have reached the point where they can cash in on their own collection of odds & sods, aptly titled Lost Loves, but is it a satisfying listen". Leading the charge is Electric Rainbow, a b-side from arguably the band’s strongest effort Planet Of Ice, and along with other b-sides from the album Cat Calls & ill Means and Patiently Waiting, are easily the album’s best cuts.

As Minus The Bear 's fourth album, " Omni," attempted to be an indie-dance-rock soundtrack for the hipster speakeasies in Brooklyn and Portland, it ultimately fizzled due to it stepping away from the smart math rock-influenced compositions that made Minus The Bear captivating in their earlier days (not to mention that the hipsters were "over" Minus The Bear at this point)  . Lost Loves " can be easily divided into two parts: Minus The Bear 's pre-" Omni " style, and their post-" Omni " style.

Lost Loves lives up to its title quite literally as a collection of hard to let go songs pulled from the band’s past seven odd years of writing, recording and releasing records. Regardless of the reason they weren’t included, it wasn’t for lack of love and appreciation of the songs themselves.

Minus the Bear is a product of the first two decades of this century. From their first show in 2001 to their impending dissolution at the end of 2018, the Seattle band thrived on the musical awakening in the era of the mp3, the internet, poptimism, and the crosspollinations generated from an expanded consciousness of new music forms. With their final EP, Fair Enough, Minus the Bear closes the book on their hybrid of art-rock, indie pop, and warehouse party appeal. The opening track Fair Enough went through a variety of permutations before the band found new meaning in its lyrical lament of lost passions and finding the exact moment we turned it off. The other songs of Fair Enough are a continuation and culmination of Minus the Bear’s diverse sounds. The up-tempo drumbeats, lush electronics, and nimble guitar work that initially set them apart are on full display during Viaduct.

It is true that Lost Loves is comprised of songs that didn’t make the cut on their previous records, but it somehow manages a sense of cohesion, and (for the most part) the tracks are just as good as what we’ve heard from Minus the Bear on their last couple full-lengths. The opening stretch of the album keeps up the quality. €œWalk On Air” is an impossibly catchy upbeat rocker that destroys just about anything on Infinity Overhead. €œPatiently Waiting” is an interesting track, simply because it eschews the normal Minus the Bear formula for something quiet and gentler.
