+ Baby pink vinyl! Limited to 1000 copies. + FINAL RELEASE BY MINUS THE BEAR "That dichotomy between dark imagery and danceable, inventive rock has always been a hallmark of Minus The Bear's sound" - Noisey Minus the Bear is a product of the first two decades of this century.

From their first show in 2001 to their impending dissolution at the end of 2018, the Seattle band thrived on the musical awakening in the era of the mp3, the internet, poptimism, and the crosspollinations generated from an expanded consciousness of new music forms.

With their final EP, Fair Enough, Minus the Bear closes the book on their hybrid of art-rock, indie pop, and warehouse party appeal.

The opening track "Fair Enough" went through a variety of permutations before the band found new meaning in its lyrical lament of lost passions and finding "the exact moment we turned it off".

The other songs of Fair Enough are a continuation and culmination of Minus the Bear's diverse sounds.

The up-tempo drumbeats, lush electronics, and nimble guitar work that initially set them apart are on full display during "Viaduct".

"Dinosaur" has the groove of early hits of "Fine + 2 PTS", but crafted with the understated Steely Dan-eque delivery of their more current slow jams.

The EP closes with a nod to their ongoing remix collaborations, this time with a rave-up reinvention of "Invisible" by Sombear.
