Podington Bear’s Growly Tum

In bear terms, it’s been a while since we’ve heard from Podington the musical bear (who often goes simply by the letter P). While the latest update no musical windfall to those who know him, it may just be a feast for the uninitiated.

P Bear has taken yet another step toward that buzz word of “free culture” by offering his complete catalog online for free download (Again, that is. It was originally debuted for free download in a stream of podcasting, and gradually rescinded throughout ’07-’09) via**:

The latest album offering has been coined Growly Tum. Could it portend P Bear’s appetite for music construction has awoken again? We shall see. It features two hitherto unreleased tracks book ending the uncollected ‘Season Two’ first fruits:

Growly Tum is also available in the HUSHshop for free or a suggested $2.49 donation (320 kbps mp3)

Other P Bear Favorites:

**As with many things in modern music merchandising there is a catch: Apart from the new Growly Tum, and Remixes Vol 1 albums (available for free at full quality), the free downloads on are limited to 128K mp3, accessed via a fairly inconspicuous link when prompted to pay via the “Download Album” link. For a pay-what-you-feel sum (of $2 or more) you can pick your favorite format in up-to CD quality for the entire collection.

Shelley Short – “Time Machine Submarine” Video, Album out Oct 13

A stop motion video created by Shelley Short (probably with a little help from video whiz Alexis Gideon) for her song “Time Machine / Submarine” from A Cave, A Canoo out Oct 13 on HUSH. Trés mignon!


A Cave, A Canoe


Time Machine / Submarine
Hard To Tell
A Cave
Tap The Old Bell
How Was The Water?

Additionally, Shelley will be touring the west coast backing Tom Brosseau with electro-acoustic-ambient composerEthan Rose (who is incidentally releasing a gorgeous album with Laura Gibson, also this Fall.) One can only guess the mellifluous songs of Brosseau will be transported to an intriguing sonic place.
