For a number of tour dates in March and April, Boy & Bear will make the trip from Australia to selected cities in Canada and the United States. Better yet, for the April dates, Wildlife will join them. The Boy & Bear tour dates are listed at the bottom of this post.
The members of Boy & Bear are Dave Hosking (lead singer/guitars), Killian Gavin (vocals/guitars), Tim Hart (drums, vocals, guitars), Jon Hart (vocals/keys/mandolin) and Dave Symes (bass). Originally, it was the 2009 solo project of singer/songwriter Hosking, but the membership soon grew to five. Our awareness didn’t come until May 2011, when the excitement around their single “Feeding Line” immigrated to the U.S.
“Feeding Line” by Boy & Bear
Recently, Boy & Bear released “Southern Sun.”
Boy & Bear is generously offering the combination of "Southern Sun” and “Three Headed Woman” as a free download on Noisetrade:

We first voiced our appreciation for Wildlife on April 3, 2013. Wildlife is a Canadian band (Toronto, Ontario), whose members are Dean Povinsky, Graham Plant, Tim Daugulis, Derek Bosomworth, and Dwayne Christie. They have been playing together since 2006, but didn’t release their debut album until 2011 (“Strike Hard, Young Diamond"). The second album ("…On the Heart") arrived in March, 2013.
Wildfire seems to favor Bandcamp over Soundcloud. So, embedded below is “,,,On the Heart.” The track that receives the most attention is “Born to Ruin,” but we also recommend the first song “If It Breaks” and the anthems that are tracks 11 and 12, which are respectively entitled “Lighting Tent” and “Two Hearts Race.”
