Grizzly Bear Veckatimest
Grizzly Bear could easily rest on their laurels — the delicate interplay between instruments and weaving vocal harmonies that typified their 2006 breakthrough Yellow House comprise the current indie sound du jour, and the record is still being discovered by new listeners. But rather than replicate that album, the Brooklyn quartet have taken a page from tour-mates Radiohead and forged ahead artistically. And while the elements that made Yellow House so engaging are still present, the band have married them to a muscular groove, led by drummer Chris Bear and multi-instrumentalist Chris Taylor. The new vibes are prominently on display with the album's first single, "Two Weeks," and the creeping "Cheerleader." By moving forward this early in their career Grizzly Bear have positioned themselves as an unpredictable entity, one whose releases fans will anticipate with bated breath, wondering what curve ball they'll throw next?
