Grizzly Bear Shields Comment Party

By Tom Breihan / September 10, 2012

Next week, Grizzly Bear drop their sprawling, ambitious, feverishly anticipated follow-up to Veckatimest. The early tracks from Shields were all enormously promising: “Sleeping Ute,” “Yet Again,” that live version of “Half Gate.” And now we get to hear the whole entire thing together, like a family. The album is streaming at NPR; to hear it, click here. And in the comments section below, let us know what you think of it and how it stacks up next to the band’s past glories.

Shields is out 9/18 on Warp. And don’t sleep on our Turntable Interview with Ed Droste.
