For most artists and creatives, the last thing that you want to do is limit yourself in terms of expression. As therapeutic as creating art and music can be, it is infinitely more rewarding when you allow yourself to expand beyond the limits imposed on you by others (or yourself). Enter Savannah, Georgia-based cunabear, an artist who clearly understands and adheres to the practice of not limiting himself in terms of creative expression. Yawning Towards Heaven!!!!, his latest release (produced by sp00ks), wonderfully shifts between abstract instrumentals, experimental boom-bap hip-hop, spoken word over sparse instrumentation, and a handful of solid posse cuts featuring labelmates such as SB the Moor, BigStupidIdiot, Gomec, the homie Virgil Wolfe, Creative Space Cadet, MugWampers and four_circles. Most everything I’ve heard from BearTooth Collective has been good, but Yawning Towards Heaven!!!! plays very much like a deeply felt personal statement. Props to cunabear for putting out a true gem for heads to take in.
