Grizzly BearPosted: August 4, 2012
Probably not news to many of you but Grizzly Bear has a new record fast approaching. Listening to this track off forthcoming Shields I began to ask myself where have the jams been lately? While there is great music out there surely, nothing has come close to being this compelling in a while (from my humble perspective), particularly Ed Droste’s chorus/vocals here. Something about them takes you away, makes you feel free or at least regret the fact that you’re not free. For me it brought me back to those glazed guitar feelings of their Friend record (which, if you haven’t listened, is electrifying). Maybe I just want something more rebellious, more lifted in music which I haven’t found lately but is supplied here.
