Bear Hands' new album Distraction is set for release next week via Cantora Records, but the band, AP and friends have teamed up to stream it early for you today. 

In a recent review, AP Editor In Chief Jason Pettigrew gave the album four-out-of-five stars and called it "the perfect antidote for listeners weary of" tired and trendy alt-rock. "Bear Hands are great," he said. "And they’re evolving faster than most of the stuff on your hard drive."

Distraction is available to pre-order on vinyl and CD on Amazon and other online retailers.
