This October, Paste dedicated a week to CMJ’s Music Marathon in New York City, where we set up in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for three days of interviews, acoustic performances and even a showcase at the Paste Parlour, presented by Squarespace. Our friends at Lagunitas Brewing provided tasty drafts while we saw an impressive lineup of established musicians along with up-and-comers come through our lounge at The Living Room’s new location at 134 Metropolitan Ave.
When we caught up with Bear’s Den, it was release week for their latest full-length Islands. We caught up with the band about the new music and heard a haunting performance of “Magdalene,” a track from the new album. Check out the video in the player above for snippets of the interview and the performance.
