On their sixth album VOIDS, Minus the Bear started with a blank slate, and inadvertently found themselves applying the same starting-from-scratch strategies that fueled their initial creative process. Album opener 'Last Kiss' immediately establishes the band's renewed fervor. An appropriately dizzying guitar line plunges into a propulsive groove before the chorus unfolds into a multi-tiered pop chorus. From there the album flows into 'Give & Take', a tightly wound exercise in syncopation that recalls the celebratory pulse of early Bear classics like 'Fine + 2 Pts' while exploring new textures and timbres. 'Invisible' is arguably the catchiest song of the band's career, with Jake Snider's vocal melodies and Knudson's imaginative guitar work battling for the strongest hooks. 'What About the Boat?' reminds us of the 'math-rock' tag that followed the band in their early years, with understated instrumentation disguising an odd-time beat. 'Erase,' recalls the merging of forlorn indie pop and electronica that the band dabbled with on their early EPs, but demonstrates the Bear's ongoing melodic sophistication and tonal exploration.
