Grizzly Bear Shields Comment Party
Next week, Grizzly Bear drop their sprawling, ambitious, feverishly anticipated follow-up to Veckatimest.

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.
