And now for something completely different, animal band Bears and Lions dropped by Team 360 Austin City Limits Headquarters to talk about their fortuitous escape from the circus, whose hide is the hottest fashion trend this year and which Austin animals would be the best addition to the band (calling all grackles!).
They also played their (kiddie) hit single “Pancakes.” It was delicious.

Navigate is the second family-friendly album from high-spirited Gainesville band Bears and Lions. Featuring rock and Americana folk music that listeners of all ages will enjoy, Navigate tells an overarching story about animal characters who take a boat across the sea to help a friend in need. A heartwarming music collection with a strong positive theme about the joys and bonds of friendship, Navigate is highly recommended. The tracks are “Jonas the Walrus”, “Little Boat”, “Hercules”, “Setting Sun”, “Pirate Pete”, “Get What You Get”, “Navigate”, “Lighthouse”, “Merman Named Jim”, and “Animal Land”.

The overall message of the album is one of unity, perseverance and friendship. Musically, the album’s sound is reminiscent of The Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper album mixed with a tinge of The Kinks’ Village Green Preservation Society. A few stand out tracks are Little Boat, Navigate, and Merman Named Jim, but it should be noted that all the songs on the album dovetail nicely to create a seamless musical adventure. Navigate drops 3/23/18.

Sue Wagner, director of community relations for WUFT-TV/FM, WUFT Classic 102.7, WJUF-FM and WRUF-AM/FM/TV, said the first band, Bears and Lions, is more geared toward children and their families.
“They are actually dressed like animals,” Wagner said. “Kids really love them.”
