You may already be familiar with Podington Bear, a solo artist who releases a new song every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in podcast form. In 2007 he set out to create three songs a week for a year.
Along the way he ended up licensing tracks to Rocketboom, This American Life and Paul Frank. It’s good stuff — mostly unobtrusive electronica with small melodies and myriad musical thoughts.
At first, you’ll think to yourself, “With a good Mac, Reason and Live I could do this.” But then you start digging into track after track to realize the depth, breadth and ambulatory circumference needed to create a 156 songs that can each stand alone as a valuable contribution to society.
Let’s just hope P.Bear doesn’t stop now…
All 156 tracks are available in a 10 CD box set called The Box Set on HUSH Records starting Tuesday, June 24. Order it here.
