2 stars First album from the Flemish group TomÓn, Catching A Grizzly Bear boasts a very sleek and attractive artwork, including some kind of petrodinnar AND the first lesson on how to achieve the album's title. Whether they already knew the answer would lead to their follow-up albums is unknown, but it definitely seems that the Ghentenaars (that's what the people og Ghent call themselves) should actually try to tour western Canada to saturate their curiosities. In either case, TomÓn develops the usual post-rock but seem intent on singing some songs, which is not that good an idea since the singer's pronunciation and accent are very much perfectible. As is I'm afraid the overall sound of the album. In the now-vast choice of pos rock records, which seem pretty well all exchangeable, given the genre-wide aural spectrum, I guess TomÓn's debut album holds very little arguments to find a spot in your helves, mainly because it's very much amateurish, except maybe in the artwork dept.
