Seattle guitar tap specialists Minus the Bear have announced Infinity Overhead, their new album due out August 28, and it appears that the band has finally given up their hopes of recreating the Sonic the Hedgehog soundtrack. As a big fan of the band’s first three albums (plus countless EPs), I was not a fan of OMNI, their 2010 release, nor the direction it seemed they were taking. The song titles, the increased synth use, the everything. I hated all of it. When I listened to the OMNI, all I could think about was how great songs like “Let’s Play Guitar in a Five Guitar Band”, “This Ain’t a Surfin’ Movie”, and “When We Escape” were and how the new album lacked the things that made those songs great. By the sound of this album preview, however, it is quite possible I’m back on the Minus the Bear bandwagon.
