Grizzly Bear

Let me preface this by saying I’ve never been a big fan of Grizzly Bear. I also must at the same time admit that I had never given them much of a chance. I believe my only experience with the band was a video or two that I had seen on Subterranean. I don’t quite recall which song(s) I may have heard, but nevertheless I was none too impressed and therefore did not attempt to learn more about the band. Recently I came upon a video of the band playing their song Two Weeks. I was mesmerized by the song and can now easily say that it will surely be somewhere high on my year end best-of list and that I am eagerly anticipating the pending release of Veckatimest. So much so in fact that I believe I am more eager to hear this album than I have any other release thus far this year, and that includes the Doves record. I hope the rest of the album lives up to the promise of this song, and that others enjoy it as much as I do. Watch the song played live and then view an unofficial video, before you grab the song if you haven’t already.
