Minus the Bear, acoustic style

Just a quick word here about the new EP from Minus the Bear. It's seven tracks, one brand new one and six revisiting previous albums. All of them served up acoustic style, which throws a boomerang in how you experience songs that you think you already know. You can buy it digitally now through the usual suspects, or you can check them out on tour (dates below) to pick up the real deal to slip into your pocket. Here's the EP's line-up (appropriately titled Acoustics):
1. Guns & Ammo (new track)
2. We Are Not a Football Team (from Highly Refined Pirates)
3. Burying Luck (from Planet of Ice)
4. Knights (from Planet of Ice)
5. Pachuca Sunrise (from Menos El Oso)
6. Throwin' Shapes (from Planet of Ice)
7. Ice Monster (from Planet of Ice)
