Dublin duo Solar Bears are the Planet Mu's latest signing. They make analog synth music that sounds like the singing Triffids from a JG Ballard novel getting amorous with Little Weed from Bill and Ben. In their downtime they hang-out in one of their little brother's bedrooms hamming out mixtapes for the Radar blog comprising all their current fixations. So that'll be: intertia-techno, classic kraut, glo-fi and old Cocteau Twins classics. Full track list and download link below:
