Friday Listening Party: Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers' 'The Bear' and a secret bonus listen

In this edition of the Listening Party, we’re giving a two for one deal. Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers’ CD The Bear excited us because of its well-styled album art. It looked a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll. And surely if it looks good then it must sound good, right? Most of our previous LPs have been more pop or dance. When this crossed my desk, I knew we had to give it a shot. But we kinda missed our high energy bit too so the LP peeps, Chris, Kristina, Chance and I, decided to take on Lolene’s “Sexy People” single.

I’m still settling on a format. This one runs a bit long. Sorry, y’all. Here we go, track by track.
