New Brunswick, New Jersey, has developed a reputation as a hub of DIY/punk music over the past decade or so and, while the trio of Long Beard certainly come from that scene, their music plays more to the understated, pretty, and melancholy side than some of their contemporaries. With half-whispered vocals that sound like late night bedroom secrets (appropriately, singer Leslie Bear actually recorded them that way), the band delivers a strong, no-frills base for the stories they tell to play out. They stopped by Serious Business in DUMBO to share some music and chat a bit about how the songs traveled from demos to fully executed recordings.

Featured song: “Hates The Party” // Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
