After this weekend’s drunken barbeque shenanigans and debauchery—where I was lucky enough to hear some tracks off of Homeless and Big Cats new album The Polar Bear Rug, I thought I would shamelessly plug their upcoming local event, and promote some actual go-getters in the wonderful city of Minneapolis.

So, here it is: Coming to Icehouse, Saturday, August 1st, is Homeless and Big Cats record release party! (Facebook Event Page)

Now, I would strongly advise you go, because from what I’ve heard so far on The Polar Bear Rug (which features: P.O.S., Toki Wright, Mally, Eric Mayson, and Lydia Liza), these songs would be great to see performed live.

This will be an exciting event, one not to be missed. Also, in case you can’t make the performance, a person can acquire the album free here through these nifty sites:

Soundcloud , Bandcamp , iTunes , Spotify .

Yeap, get it and go! Have a fun day.

Directly from Big Cats’ Facebook Page: “Eric Mayson is one of the most important musicians in the Twin Cities right now.
He and I recently recorded this cover of my favorite John Lennon song, Isolation.
It brings a fresh perspective to a song that’s as relevant today as it was when it was written more than 40 years ago.
Please take a moment to listen and share if it resonates with you.”

I took the opportunity to listen, and loving John Lennon, covers (in general), and being a fan of Big Cats, I thought I would share.  Have a listen to this wonderful take on a classic.  The production value lends itself a bittersweet mood, along with Eric Mayson’s powerful vocals; ‘Isolation’ is an ambient and touching song. 

Enjoy-
