Trip the Light Fantastic is a 19 song full length album by Bear the Astronot. Melding genres is and always has been part of Bear the Astronot’s sound. For decades he has been making music under a few different names and bands/groups. The main three that are his bread & butter are Bear the Astronot of course (Alternative Hip-Hop, Songwriter), Bear Cole (DJ, Dance, Pop), Turntable Kachina (Downtempo, Lofi, Electronic). On the album Trip the Light Fantastic, more than ever all 3 come together.
A mix of all of these skills and genres, combines to take you through Hip-Hop, Musical, House, Bluegrass, R&B, Drum & Bass, Metal, Celtic, Singer-Songwriter, Island Reggae, Electronic, EDM – in one flowing extravaganza. Coming straight from Bear Gallagher-Cole – I really hope you enjoy this album and can find some time to enjoy it in it’s entirety. On your next workout or run, sitting in a dark room, as you lay down in bed. I know albums are rarely listened to all the way through these days – and I get it, who has the time. However, I hope you can find some time to consume this music, and as always I love you for doing so.
As usual, Trip the Light Fantastic is 100% Produced, Performed, Written, Recorded, Mixed, Mastered etc. by Bear Gallagher-Cole. A mix of influences and the Dark and Light that comes with life. Humor, Horror, Grief, Love, Cynicism, Hope, and Dance all wrapped up in a little bow. That is Bear the Astronot’s new album – Trip the Light Fantastic.
