In this week's paper, Christian Schaeffer reviews Cold Bear Scout's Let's Meet the Sun and the Moon EP. He had this to say:

[The EP] is a brief but rewarding glimpse into his style of off-kilter folk rock. There's a rootsy, ramshackle quality to many of Moon's songs, but Cold Bear Scout's sound is shot through with enough static, feedback and twinkly percussion to build a bridge between freak folk and mainstream indie. "From Time to Time" initially coasts on the metallic plunks of a kalimba, but it's not long before some ragged electric guitar and the deep beat of a floor tom steer the song toward a decidedly more rocking conclusion. This progression from bucolic whimsy to sonic spelunking guides much of the EP.
