Heimir Björgúlfsson is an ex-member of the longstanding Icelandic group Stilluppsteypa and Jonas Ohlsson is a reknown visual artist, at the time of the collaboration both based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Fur Your Bears Only is their second collaboration after the Unspoken Word Tour album in the Brombron series released by Staalplaat and Extrapool. Fur Your Bears Only is the most melodic and poppy music ever to have come out of Björgúlfsson & Ohlsson, providing 8 tracks that show how disco & house can get distorted once in the hands of these two gentlemen. From the epic opening 10-minute title track onwards this work is full of abstract dancefloor sympathies. Recorded in Amsterdam, Xiamen, Los Angeles and Reykjavik, Fur Your Bears Only is the best example of how good a hybrid between classic dance music and abstract experimentalism can be. With beautiful collage artwork made by the two musicians themselves.
