Perpetually broke indie rockers rejoice! Minus the Bear is the living, ursine proof that if you put in the work, with a lithe guitar tone and crisp songwriting, you too can achieve relative financial stability. Founded in 2001, the Seattle outfit released a few critique-proof records in the mid-aughts filled with quirky song names like “Absinthe Party at the Fly Honey Warehouse.” With just enough guitar-taps to attract the prog-guitar nerds without off-putting everyone else, the band has attracted a wide following. And because of their catholic indie approval, Minus the Bear is knocking hard on Billboard’s door, with its most recent album Infinity Overhead debuting at the 31st spot on the chart. With Into It. Over It.
