Grizzly Bear is one of those bands that is a rare beauty. Usually when I get a rad CD from a band that I don’t know I share the news with other people. But for some reason, when Yellow House came out a few years ago by Grizzly Bear, I kept quiet. I loaded it on my laptop and work computer and jammed to it privately, listening to th emusic through my earphones. It was good–I mean, really good.
Only a few days ago the band released their new album Veckatimest. The band explained that “it’s kinda clearer, clearer equals more accessible I feel like clearer equals more accessible in general as a rule.” ( http://www.thelineofbestfit.com/2009/05/tlobf-interview-grizzly-bear/) Which, I think is true because it is a little more pop rocky than before. Don’t worry, it is rad.
In it’s first week it has already zoomed to the spot of Number 8 on the Top 200 list. So listen to me, trust me, the shit is good. Go buy it instead of stealing it on the internet. 🙂
This is the music video for the song “Two Weeks” which is the second track from the new CD Veckatimest. Listen, it is well worth it, I promise.
