New: Grizzly Bear - Two Weeks

Extremely busy this semester; already taking the course for my final year project although I'm hardly in my final year yet. So expect updates to stream in - collectively, since I've accumulated them for the past few days - in no more than twice a week. It's actually also because the internet connection is giving me the hardest time lately-- damn you, Maxis!

Aiyoh, so good one this new Grizzly Bear song. Just when you thought this Brooklyn gang couldn’t get any better, they push boundaries and progress way beyond your wildest expectations. I have no idea how the guys do it, how they're still capable of digging deeper into their musical crevasses to extract and produce something as equally captivating if not more, to their previous material. The Beatles-esque ‘Two Weeks’ comprise of stunning electronic nuances, appearing slightly removed from quintessential Grizzly Bear, yet still sounding every bit equivalent to what a Grizzly Bear tune should sound like-- it’s just too good to the point of ridiculousness.

The follow up to their critically acclaimed 2006 Yellow House will be released sometime in April of 2009. It’s a torture to let us wait for that long, a torture I tell you.

Also that other new song, though not so relatively new in comparison.
